Stahmanns Pecans provides guidelines on how to properly store pecans and how to extend the shelf life of them.

La Luz, NM -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/21/2017 -- Every so often, customers want to know how to store pecans when buying pecans in bulk. Stahmanns Pecans processes and sells its brand of wholesale pecans for both commercial and industrial markets. The health benefit of pecans comes from a good source of protein, manganese, and unsaturated fats. However, these high levels of oil in pecans make these nuts prone to rancidity and spoilage, especially if they are not stored properly.

The oil content also makes it easy for pecans to absorb odors. Pecans that are canned and roasted are more vulnerable to rancidity, due to high temperature.

How Different Temperatures Affect Kosher Pecan Nuts

On the other hand, pecans stored in shells typically last longer than those that are roasted or canned. Stored pecans react differently to varying storage temperatures. Under a normal room temperature of 70°F, pecans can last up to 20 days. If this type of pecan is sealed in an airtight container, it may last up to 45 days. In addition, placing a pecan in an airtight container in a refrigerator at 34°F can extend its life to between nine and ten months.

Extend the Life of Bulk Pecans

Under 0°F freezing conditions, a pecan stored in an airtight container can stay fresh for between 18 months and two years. Pecans can also be thawed and re-frozen several times.

To keep pecans in an unspoiled condition, always store them in a clean, sealed container. As a company, we have gone to great lengths to provide customers with all the information they need to keep their pecans fresh for longer periods of time. Stahmanns Pecans guarantees all of its customers only the freshest and tastiest bulk pecans.
