Abstract Chemical composition of eight sweet chestnut cultivars from the three protected designation of origin (PDO) areas in the Tras-os-Montes region were studied: Aveleira, Reborda, Trigueira and Zeive from PDO ‘Terra Fria’, Demanda, Longal and Martainha from PDO ‘Soutos da Lapa’ and Judia from PDO ‘Padrela’. Chestnuts were characterised by high moisture content (∼50%), high levels of starch (43 g 100 g −1 dry matter – d.m.) and low fat content (3 g 100 g −1 d.m.). Nuts contained significant… CONTINUE READING
