Drying is an old practice, prominently used in order to store high humidity food products such fruits and nuts for long periods of time. Dried food refers to a wide array of products such as dried fruits and nuts, while mix trail refers to specific nuts such as pistachio, almond, seeds and hazelnut.
Considering the vast pistachio gardens of Iran, Iran’s mix trail is an important export good, renowned in international market. The oil present in seeds can experience oxidation, and naturally, this process causes a negative change in the taste and the odor of the said product. This change heavily affects the quality of exported goods and thus, should be prevented.
Manax packages require no gas injection (MAP) and no specific packaging machinery and are able to store dried products and mix trail for up to 6 months.
Advantages of using Manax in dried food packaging:
- Ceasing of oxidation reactions
- Keeping the odor and the taste of the product for a long period of time
