storage dates

Dates are one of the most important agricultural products in Iran, which with their high sugar content, appropriate amounts of vitamins and minerals can be considered as the main food. With the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, the tendency towards this nutritious food increases.

The growth stages of date fruit include Kimri, Khalal or khark, Rutab and Tamr or dates and we should know that dates are more perishable in the early stages of growth due to high humidity.

Dates can be divided into three categories based on texture and appearance: soft, semi-dry and dry. For long-term storage of dates, the process of dehumidification or drying is done on them, which prevents microbial spoilage, including rot in the dates.

Storage of Mazafati dates

For example, Mazafati date should be consumed after harvest or stored properly; Otherwise, it becomes acidic due to the activity of microbes (including fungi).

Acidity occurs as a result of the conversion of sugar present in dates to acid. Therefore, low temperature is used for storing and transporting dates.

Proper packaging of dates is another effective factor in long-term storage of dates. Packaging protects the product from damage caused by movement, moisture, dust, pests and other damages.

High power to absorb ambient moisture

Dates are one of the products that easily absorb environmental moisture, so proper packaging plays an important role in the shelf life of the product.

Common packaging includes plastic bags made of polyethylene, sewing bags and placing the bags in small cartons, picking dates in disposable containers, using cellophane cover (cellophane) and packaging under special vacuum Cited.

Dates can be stored at room temperature and refrigerated based on the amount of moisture. Dried dates should be stored at room temperature away from direct sunlight and in a dry place; While soft dates for long-term storage should be stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
