Compared to most techniques that look at powder stability, a DDI (dynamic dewpoint isotherm) curve is a simple, straightforward approach. Other methods require you to hold your product at different water activities and evaluate it through a texture analysis to see if the properties change.
METER Group, Inc. USA was a winner of this year’s iF DESIGN AWARD, a world-renowned design prize. The winning product, SKALA, won in the discipline “Product”, in the “Laboratory Instrument” category.
Water activity can be used to limit microbial growth, maintain chemical stability, minimize lipid oxidation, control moisture migration, preserve texture, and predict shelf life.
