Abstract: 

Dried fruits in Iran are mostly contaminated with mold, yeast and coliform which sometimes pass over the standard level. In order to enhance the export of dried fruits, the products should be free of any contamination. In this study, microwave and 802 fumigation methods in decontamination of dried fruit were applied. Total count, coliform, mold and yeast counts and ascorbic acid content of dried fruit samples (plum, raisin and apricot) were measured before and after the treatments. Ascorbic acid content of plum samples was found to be significantly higher than fumigation method. There were no significant differences in ascorbic acid content in the case of raisin and dried apricot samples. SO2 residue was found to be 1200 p.p.m in raisins, which was more than standard level. Results indicated that, microwave treatment could be recommended for decontamination of dried fruit products.
