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.
