Honey Murcott Mandarins

Honey Murcott Mandarins

The Honey Murcott is one of the sweetest mandarins grown in Australia. Whilst it has more seeds than the Imperial and Afourer mandarin, it has a higher juice and sugar content making it a perfect substitute for orange juice if you feel like something to give you a boost in the morning. The Honey Murcott is a very popular export variety, particularly in South East Asia, because of its tight skin, high sugar to acid ratio and its ability to transport well over long distances.

Valencia orange

Valencia orange

The Valencia orange is a sweet orange first hybridized by California pioneer agronomist and land developer William Wolfskill, on his farm in Santa Ana in southern California in the United States.

Primarily grown for processing and orange juice production, Valencia oranges have seeds, varying in number from zero to seven per fruit. However, its excellent taste and internal color make it desirable for the fresh markets, too. The fruit has an average diameter of 2.7 to 3 inches (70 to 76 mm). After bloom, it usually carries two crops on the tree, the old and the new. The commercial harvest season in Florida runs from March to June. Worldwide, Valencia oranges are prized as the only variety of orange in season during

Navel oranges

Navel oranges

Navel oranges are characterized by the growth of a second fruit at the apex, which protrudes slightly and resembles a human navel. They are primarily grown for human consumption for various reasons: their thicker skin make them easy to peel, they are less juicy and their bitterness a result of the high concentrations of limonin and other limonoids renders them less suitable for juice.

Butter

Butter

In 2012/13, Australia produced 118,200 tonnes of butter and anhydrous milkfat (AMF) or butteroil in commercial butter equivalent terms (CBE).small 1% decrease on the previous year.

AMF is butter with the water removed. It is primarily produced for export and domestic food processing applications, such as bakery and confectionery. While these sectors also use butter, the majority of domestic butter sales are through retail and food service outlets.

Cheese

Cheese

Australia produced 338,300 tonnes of cheese in 2012/13a decline of 2.4% on the previous year. Production volumes are significantly less than earlier in the decade as the availability of milk trended downward since that time. Another factor in more recent years, as milk production has stabilized at lower levels, has been the impact of dairy companies opportunistically changing their export product mixes to take advantage of favourable movements in international dairy commodity prices.

Casein & whey

Casein & whey

Whey is a by-product of the cheese making process. Traditionally this product was disposed of in liquid form. However, recognition of the value of wheys components has seen the production and utilisation of whey powders and protein concentrates increase significantly in recent years.
Food-grade whey powder is used in the manufacture of ice-cream, bakery products (cakes, biscuits), chocolate flavouring, infant formula, yogurt, beverages and processed meat. Industrial uses include animal feed (for pigs, horses and poultry), calf milk replacer and even as a carrier for herbicides.

Cream

Cream

Creamy in colour and creamy in body, cream is the fat component of milk. It contains around 48% milk fat in its natural state. The Food Standards Code (Standard 2.5.2) defines cream as a milk product comparatively rich in fat, in the form of an emulsion of fat in skim milk, which can be obtained by separation from milk. Cream forms naturally as light fat. Remove the cream and you are left with skim milk. During production, centrifugal force is used to accelerate the separation of the cream from the milk which is placed in large vats. Cream comes in a number of different forms to suit every taste and application.

Desi type – GENESIS TM 509

Desi type – GENESIS TM 509

Has good ascochyta resistance and is likely to require only one fungicide application during podding. Seed is less preferred than Howzat and PBA Slasher. Genesis 509 yields lower than PBA Slasher. It has shown broad adaptation and is suited to both the Wimmera and Mallee regions.

Nutritional Information

Chickpeas are a very good source of carbohydrates and proteins which altogether constitute about 80% of the total dry seed weight. Starch, which is the principal carbohydrate component, varies in content from 41-50% and is lower in Desi varieties than in Kabuli varieties. Total seed carbohydrates vary from 52-71%. The crude protein content of chickpea varieties ranges from 16-24%. Crude fibre, an important constituent of chickpeas is mostly located within the seed coat.
Based on amino acid composition, the proteins of chickpea seed were found, on average, to be of higher nutritive value than those of other grain legumes. Chickpeas meet adult human requirements for all essential amino acids except methionine and cysteine, and have a low level of tryptophan. Chickpeas have a high protein digestibility and are richer in phosphorus and calcium than other pulses.

Genesis 090 has good ascochyta blight resistance and is likely to require only one fungicide application during podding. It has shown wide adaptation and excellent yield stability, including in drier environments. Genesis 090 has a smaller seed, approximately 1mm smaller than that of Kaniva.
