Understanding the Darkening of Dried Longans: A Natural Phenomenon

At our company, we take great pride in producing high-quality dried longans, ensuring our customers receive the best products possible. We’ve noticed that some of our customers have inquired about the phenomenon of dried longans becoming darker in color after extended storage. We believe in transparent communication with our valued customers, and thus, we’d like to shed light on this natural occurrence.

Why Do Dried Longans Darken Over Time?

The natural darkening of dried longans is primarily attributed to a combination of oxidation and caramelization processes that occur after they are harvested and dried. Allow us to explain these factors in more detail:

  1. Oxidation: Longans, like many fruits, contain natural antioxidants while they are fresh. However, after being separated from the fruit and undergoing the drying process, they come into contact with air, initiating an oxidation reaction. This oxidation process gradually causes the dried longans to develop a darker brown hue.

  2. Caramelization: During the drying process, longans’ natural sugars react to the high temperature, undergoing a chemical reaction known as caramelization. This process leads to the transformation of sugars into deeper, caramel-like compounds, contributing to the darker color of the dried longans.

  3. Light Exposure: To maintain the quality of our dried longans, we store them in optimal conditions, away from direct sunlight. However, if they are exposed to light through thin packaging or containers, light exposure can contribute to the alteration of their color.

  4. Storage Duration: The duration of storage can also influence the color of dried longans. As they are stored for an extended period, the chances of oxidation and caramelization increase, leading to a more pronounced darkening effect.
