Abstract


Some results of a research, concerning the influence of the microclimate factorsduring eggs storage period on some specific physical and microbiological qualityindices of the commercial consumption eggs, are presented within the paper. In order to achieve the study goal, two of the three eggs groups were storedaccording to the classical storing conditions (short term=+10÷+11oC and 75% airmoisture, respectively long term =+4oC and 90% air moisture), while the thirdgroup was stocked within the conditions existing to various traders (+20÷+25oC and45% air moisture).The storage period counted 21 days and the quality assessmentswere done at the beginning of the period and then, at each 7 days.The comparativeanalysis of the studied physical quality factors, assessed at the beginning and at theend of the storage period, shown minor quality alterations (1.17-22.08%) in thegroups stored “refrigerated”, while major alterations were observed (4.57-48.49%)in the eggs stored in conditions simulating traders supply parameters.Moreover,maintaining the eggs at low temperature inhibits germ multiplications to only 5.88%from initial contamination, as compared to +46.45% germs payload on the shell,after the eggs storage at high environmental temperatures.
