Hazelnut, Corylus avellana / Corylacea (Betulaceae)
Postharvest Atmosphere Management
The vacuum packaging is recommended to protect the product from moisture.

Because of the easy disturbance of hazelnuts, packages that protect from moisture are recommended, vacuum packaging or with nitrogen flows to reject oxygen and maintain the quality.

Salted hazelnuts are not found vacuum packaged, and other processed products such as chocolate, nougat, liquor... with their adequate package.
Postharvest Problems
The main problem is the attack of insects in the warehouse.

There are several insects that may damage the stored dry fruits. In order to diminish the attack of insects there must be a good hygiene and we can fumigate with authorized chemical products. Nevertheless, they are used less and less because there may appear residues problems. Other ways to control them are by means of irradiation, heat processings and using controlled atmospheres.
