Making shelf-stable food products is not an easy process.  It requires food technologists and quality control managers to balance the demands of food safety, cost, shelf life, and consumer acceptance.   The ability to accurately and consistently predict a product's shelf life can be an invaluable tool in this process.  This webcast will focus on how to predict shelf life using water activity and isotherm data.

Webcast Objectives:
• Forecast shelf life loss due to microbial contamination using water activity-based models
• Predict shelf life loss due to chemical degradation using water activity-based models
• Calculate shelf life in package using water activity-based models

Intended Audience(s): Product Developers, Company Management, Sales & Marketing Personnel, Plant Production Personnel, Quality Assurance Managers and Supervisors, Food Safety Specialists, Product manufacturers, Research Staff, Regulators, Academics, Students
Learning Level(s): Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
