It is the manufacturer's responsibility to assign a shelf-life for each product that is produced. To do this, it is important to know which factors limit shelf life – they could be microbiological, chemical or sensory or a combination of all three.
- Microbiological – growth of spoilage organisms or pathogens
- Chemical – development of off-flavours, e.g. rancidity
- Sensory – changes in flavour or appearance due to chemical, microbiological or physical changes – e.g. staling, moisture migration, structural breakdown
The nature of the deterioration will determine what type of analysis is appropriate. Contact us to discuss.
