Maintaining quality of seeds, nuts and their derived products - 
optimizing transport conditions

Projecttitel: Maintaining quality of seeds, nuts and their derived products - optimizing transport conditions
Projectnummer: LWV19109
Missie: Gewaardeerd, gezond en veilig voedsel
MMIP: D4: Duurzame en veilige verwerking
Looptijd: 2020 – 2023
Projectleider: Robert Hall

The project designs a more sustainable value chain for seed-based food commodities, by reducing lipid oxidation, insect damage, mould growth and mycotoxin production during transport and storage, while strongly reducing energy use. 
The approach is to design new storage strategies and generate biochemical data on the molecular mechanisms behind quality losses. 
With this more generic storage applications are envisaged and causal links between quality loss and chemical change can be predicted.
