The article focuses on chestnut product processing. During storage, chestnuts undergo water loss and fungal infections which affect the maintenance of their quality that is why the food industry continuously looks for food preservation processes for chestnuts. Some of these processes include drying, chestnut flour processing, candying and canning. Traditional chestnut preservations such as preserves in jars and freezing are still done.
