Shiitake mushrooms (Lentinus edodes) were treated under different perforation-mediated MAP conditions. In-package O2 and CO2 concentrations, the surface color difference, browning degree, total phenolics, the enzymatic activity PPO, POD, and PAL were determined. Then the correlation analysis of the indexes was carried out. The results showed that O2 concentration decreased and CO2 concentration increased gradually, and reached the equilibrium on the day 6. All the treatments of PM-MAP could maintain the surface color and decrease the browning degree, and the P2 and P4 were the best. The total phenolics of shiitake mushroom decreased gradually, and were higher in MAP treatments than control till the end of the storage. All the MAP treatments had obvious influence on the PPO and PAL activity, and P2 and P4 treatments retarded the increase of POD activity to some extent.

Keywords: perforation-mediated MAP; browning degree; total phenolics; enzymatic activity; antioxidant activity.
