Water activity, the energy status of water in a system, is widely known to be associated with microbial stability, but its value as a process control parameter in determining product quality is often overlooked.

This webcast will give a brief introduction to water activity and focus on applications for water activity related to product quality as opposed to microbial safety.  Examples will be used to help you understand moisture sorption isotherms and food quality and engineering applications.

Webcast Objectives:

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
