Food Shelf-life Testing

Food shelf-life testing is the process of evaluating and determining the length of time a food product can maintain its freshness, quality, and safety before it becomes unsuitable for consumption. This testing involves analyzing various factors that can affect the product's shelf life, such as microbial growth, enzymatic activity, oxidation, moisture, temperature, light exposure, physical damage, and cross-contamination.

At Handary, by conducting rigorous testing, manufacturers and food producers can establish accurate date marking, such as "Best before" or "Use-by" dates, to ensure that consumers receive fresh and safe products.

Our Food Shelf-life Testing Services

At Handary, food shelf-life testing involves subjecting product samples to specific storage conditions to simulate real-life scenarios. These samples are analyzed over time to monitor changes in sensory attributes, microbial activity, nutritional content, and signs of spoilage or deterioration. The results help manufacturers determine date marking, storage recommendations, and quality control measures.

Our shelf-life testing items include sensory evaluations, microbiological analysis, chemical testing, and physical measurements to assess factors like color, texture, odor, pH, moisture content, and nutrition. It provides valuable insights for packaging, formulation, and storage decisions, optimizing shelf life and ensuring product quality and safety.
