The peculiarity of storing sunflower seeds for making sunflower oil is due to the fact that the uneven moisture content from the combine harvesters, due to the high intensity of the respiration of the seeds, quickly warms up. In contrast to cereals, in the self-heating of sunflower there are 4 stages:
- • The seed temperature rises from 15 to 25 ° C – the color, odor and flowability of the seeds do not change;
- • the temperature rises to 40 ° C as a result of the respiration of seeds and the rapid development of microflora – the seeds become defective, moldy, have a musty smell, a bitter taste, loses its luster, acidity increases, germination decreases, flowability is lost, and the embankment becomes compacted;
- • the temperature rises from 40 to 55 ° C – thermophilic bacteria develop, bitter taste and stale smell intensify, the membranes darken, the nucleus turns yellow, the germination rate is quite low, the acidity increases to 15-16 mg KOH per 1 g of fat;
- • the temperature rises to 55 ° C or more as a result of the activity of thermophilic bacteria and as a result of developing processes, the acidity increases to 30-35 mg KOH per 1 g of fat, the seed defect is 100 percent.
Sunflower seeds are safely stored only at a humidity of less than 7% and a temperature of no higher than 10 ° C.
At a humidity of 8% and a temperature of 20 ° C they can be stored for 1.5 months, 10 ° C for 4.5 months, at 1 ° C for more than 6 months.
