Macadamia physiology and nut quality (Feb/March 2020 MacGroup)

2020 | Penter M | Presentation

South African expert Mark Penter has completed extensive research on South African orchards during challenging climatic seasons and led numerous research trials to improve on-farm practices which directly impact kernel quality and post-harvest efficiency.

MC12002 Developing a commercial shelf-life test for macadamias

2015 | Jones K | Research report/article

A commercially viable, cost-ffective, rapid test has been developed that allows the macadamia industry to assess the shelf-life and quality of raw and roasted macadamia kernel.

MC10008 Developing a commercial test for macadamia shelf life; proof of concept

2011 | Jones K | Research report/article

This report provides outcomes from the Macadamia  Shelf Life: Proof of Concept project to the funding body and stakeholders. The  aim of this project is to demonstrate the efficacy of using NIR and/or E nose  technology to predict the potential shelf life of macadamias. The project has demonstrated that a practical, rapid and cost-effective test can be developed which will distinguish between batches of raw kernel, with long or short shelf-life.  The report also details the pros and cons of different technologies and  provides an action plan for development of an industry standard test.

Postharvest removal of distal end browning in macadamia nut kernels in South Africa

2004 | Kaiser C | Research report/article

A literature review to understand the causes and physiology of the browning reactions in 2003 and subsequent funded research in 2004 in an effort to reduce or eliminate the browning.

Assessment of quality defects in macadamia kernels using NIR spectroscopy

2003 | Guthrie J, Greensill C, Bowden R, Walsh K | Research report/article

Kernels were assessed on the basis of oil and water content, and with respect to the defect categories of insect damage, rancidity, discoloration, mould growth, germination and decomposition.
