Retort pouch peanuts are a new product manufactured with the aim of increasing peanut production and consumption. Retort pouch peanuts are produced using raw pods and have a soft texture, similar to when boiled. This product is ready-to-eat and can be stored for long periods at room temperature. Cultivation controls and low temperature maintenance of raw pods, from harvest to retort treatment, are important for the manufacture of high quality products, both in appearance and taste. Retort pouch peanuts are a food produced by close co-operation of the grower and manufacturer, and since its introduction over 10 years ago, it has maintained a stable presence in the peanut-processing sector.
