This work reports the application of oxygen-(O(2)-) reducing atmosphere methods on stored shelled Brazil nut (Bertholletia excelsa H.B.K.) packs aiming to evaluate the degree of aflatoxin degradation, nuts lipid oxidative stability, fungi control, and hygienic conditions improvement. The methods applied were (a) ozone: O(3), (b) carbon dioxide: CO(2), and (c) O(2) absorber pads with and without vacuum. From all modified atmospheres evaluated, the best performance was obtained with O(3), either… CONTINUE READING
