Research Status and Development of Peanut Fruit Drying Technology and Equipment
As one of the important oil crops in the world, peanuts occupy a pivotal position in crops. Fresh harvested peanut fruit are susceptible to mildew and aflatoxins due to their high moisture content, thus affecting the safety of use and reducing the economic value of peanuts. The timely drying of peanut fruit after harvest can effectively inhibit the growth and reproduction of microorganisms and molds, reduce the effects of environmental temperature and humidity on peanut storage, and ensure the quality and safety of peanuts. This paper summarizes the research status of peanut fruit drying technology and equipment at home and abroad, introduces various drying methods of peanuts fruit and corresponding drying equipment, sum up the existing problems, proposes relevant research recommendations, providing reference for peanut fruit drying technology equipment research.
