The objective of the present study is to evaluate the effect of refrigeration and modified atmosphere during storage on some quality parameters of strawberries. The samples were analyzed 2, 4, 6, and 8 days during storage. Were analyzed fruit weight, soluble solids content, chromatic parameters L*, a*, b*, fruit firmness, total titratable acidity, pH, the anthocyanin content. The result suggested that modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) can be beneficial for reducing mass loss and firmness after 8 days storage. However, acidity, soluble solids, did not change during storage and shelf life.
