The development of rancidity is a major challenge in whole grain foods Rancidity can develop in whole grain flour before processing as well as during storage of the finished products The objective of this study was to determine the storage stability of whole wheat extrudates produced from flour stored in the freezer or at ambient conditions for 6 months Two lots of whole wheat flour were divided into two portions One portion was stored at ambient conditions (22 °C and 65% relative humidity); the other portion was stored in a freezer (-20 °C) After 6 months of storage the flours were extruded using a pilot scale Wenger twin screw extrusion system to produce a Ready-to-Eat puffed wheat crisp cereal Cereals from each treatment were packaged in sealed foil laminate pouches and stored at ambient conditions up to 6 months Flours and cereals were analyzed for free fatty acids and hexanal After 6 months of storage, the whole wheat flour stored at ambient conditions contained significantly more free fatty acids (107 μmol/g) and hexanal (164 ppb) compared with the flour stored in the freezer (458 μmol/g and 19 ppb respectively); however, after extrusion the cereals were not significantly different for free fatty acids or hexanal (440 μmol/g vs 425 μmol/g and 347 ppb vs 347 ppb, respectively) After 6 months of storage the cereals were still not significantly different for these analytes (398 μmol/g vs 445 μmol/g; 977 ppb vs 101 ppb) Surprisingly, extrusion of “rancid” flour did not change the storage stability of extruded crisps compared with stored crisps from sound flour .
