Chestnuts

February 16 , 2018

Chestnuts – moulding and loss of weight during storage are preventable by applying the AiroFresh® Technology.

 

Chestnuts can’t just be stored such as nuts. They should not dry out as otherwise they become unenjoyable. If kept at a high temperature or humidity are they going to become mouldy.

Chestnuts are difficult in storage and this only for a short time and depending of the variety.

An Australian chestnut trader who tested out the AiroFresh® found that chestnuts stored in combination with AiroFresh ® the  post-harvest treatment to avoid moulding is not necessary if the AiroFresh® technology was applied. The weight loss is significantly less than the fruits without AiroFresh ® air treatment.

Also was the storage period of the chestnuts with AiroFresh ® is significantly longer than the ones kept the conventional way.
