Abstract

The effects of temperature and moisture content on fat oxidation (peroxide value) during storage of commercial unblanched salted roasted peanuts were investigated by storing 1.4 +/- 0.02% moisture samples at 15-degrees-C, 25-degrees-C, 35-degrees-C and 1.4 +/- 0.02%, 2.2 +/- 0.04%, 2.86 +/- 0.03%, 3.9 +/- 0.06% moisture samples at 35-degrees-C. Oxidation took place even at low temperatures and the rate of oxidation was especially accelerated at high temperatures. The Q10 value for peroxidation was calculated as 1.60 from the shelf-life plot (r = 0.821).
