Final report DFRDC Project no CSH 39. DFRDC initiated a 3 year project to study the lipid chemistry of dried sultanas.

The project had a number of objectives:

investigate lipid composition of commercially avilable drying and dressing oils;
develop methods to measure drying /dressing oil residues on dried sultanas;
assess amount and type of residues on fruit produced using current methods; investigate influence of various on-farm and off-farm factors on amount and type of residues;
investigate changes in drying oil lipids which occur during drying; and assist in providing guidelines for the production of high quality golden sultanas with minimum residues.
