SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The patent applications (including any patents issuing therefrom or claiming priority thereto) intended for licensure describe and claim indicator strips for monitoring food quality and freshness in real time. The major factor for food spoilage is the release of volatile gases due to the action of enzymes contained within the food or produced by microorganisms growing in the food. The rate of release of such gases depends on food’s storage history. In this technology, a reactive dye locked in a water-repellent material reacts with the gases released during food decomposition, and changes color. Thus a rapid and informed decision can be made about quality of food and its shelf life under the storage conditions used.
