Water Activity 201: Specifications and Shelf Life

Step one is learning that water activity measurements are key to making shelf life predictions. Step two is learning how to do it yourself. 

Do you know how to use water activity and temperature data to figure out the shelf life of your product? In Water Activity 201, Dr. Brady Carter, METER’s Director of Food Science, gives a roadmap to get from simply taking water activity readings to actually determining shelf life. He’ll show how to establish a critical water activity specification, how to determine microbial growth and chemical reaction rates, and how to use this information to determine and lengthen shelf life.
