Nuts in Cracker

Hello everyone

I want to know what is the best way to prevent oxidation of nuts such as sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc... that are sprinkled on the crackers or mixed inside the dough?

thanks in advance

Dear Faran


Some stability and prevention of oxidation possible only if you use the seeds after roasting and checking the moisture of the seeds.  If you use without roasting you will have all the problems.  

secondly good primary packing materials with good barrier properties for OTR then I think you are safe to market the product for at least 4 months shelf life.  If all ok it can be extended to 6months also.

Dear Mr. Faran, together with Mr. Subramaniam advice that is quite essential, I would like to mention that I have had good results using Rosmarin Oil added to the dough or even added to the seeds, forming a film on its surface. Please, take care once it has its characteristic taste.

it is so difficult to keep the sunflower seed ..not oxidation.

it is so sensitive to  oxidation.   u cant get max 2months shelf life. 

only if u use MAP  packaging and oxygrn absorber pieces in your package. and also using high barrier packaging material.  may be u can increase the shelf life  6 months etc.
