In the experiment, fruits such as pineapple, cardamom, cantaloupe, watermelon, strawberry and kiwi were used as test materials. Half of each fruit was used for fresh cutting, and the other half was used as a control. All treated fruits were refrigerated for 9 days under specified conditions, and then their nutrient content was determined. The results showed that there was only a small loss of nutrients in fresh-cut fruit.
