カリフォルニアにおけるピスタチオナッツの生産状況 Processing of pistachios in California
In Japan, an import amount of pistachio nuts, from the United States is increasing every year, because there is hardly contamination with aflatoxin in the pistachio nuts. On the basis of the local information, I introduce a process from the harvest of pistachio nuts to manufacture at California. As the result of manual, standard, machine harvest, machine dryness and industry-university collaboration, we can have high quality pistachio nuts with little aflatoxin contamination. So as to prevent contamination with aflatoxin, pistachio nuts need to be isolated from fungus. Therefore, it is necessary to have the consistent control system that is from farm to factory.
