Mazafati Bam Dates Storage & Shelf Life Policy

Kurma Madu Mazafati is the most unique & famous type of Iranian dates which has high demand around the world. Mazafati kurma comes in three types: Fresh & Semi-Fresh and Dry. The storage policy of each type of mozafati is difference and should pay enough attention to these instructions for the bests:

Fresh Mazafati Bam DatesFresh Mazafati Dates Storage:

Fresh dates should keep and store in 0 –1 °C (32–33.8°F) temperature from harvesting/production date to 8 months and for more than 8 months, should keep from harvesting/production date in −5 °C (23 °F) temperature because kurma bam has high volume of juice and high percent of moisture (max 25%) and sugar materials. Each of these characteristics can have a negative effect on the quality and taste of dates if the storage temperature not be appropriate. In order to rotab dates due to having sugar content, juice and moisture spoil faster and their color change and flavor and taste become sour if storage temperature be unsuitable. Inappropriate temperature and environment increase the activities of microorganisms such as yeasts, capers and bacteria that cause date corruption, date rot and also cause date sugaring, sourness in the taste and smell of dates, flow or extract juice/syrup from dates and worms in dates, which all of them will lead your consumer dissatisfaction.

semi fresh mazafati datesSemi Fresh Mazafati Dates:

Max moisture of semi fresh mazafati date is 20% and storage policy of it is same as fresh mazafati dates. If we expect good quality in taste, flavor, color and smell of our dates, we should keep in the low temperature between 0 –1 °C (32–33.8°F).

Dry mazafati date is one dry type with max moisture of 16%. The storage policy of it is different from fresh & semi-fresh mazafati dates. This dry type doesn’t need to store in the low temperature because of low moisture so there is not any concern of date sugaring, sourness or extracting juice/syrup from it but pests are always available and if you want to not sell date with full of worms and bugs, please pay enough attention to these instruction:
