For more information contact: Mike Adams or call 503-872-6680.
*Baseline Quality Analysis
Before designing a shelf life study we like to ensure our client’s products have been assessed for several quality metrics. This is to identify any shelf life concerns in the formulation or packaging that need to be addressed before finalizing product design.
Our baseline quality analysis assesses:
- Water activity
- Brix (sugar content)
- Aerobic plate count
- Yeast and mold
- E. coli/coliforms
Completion of a baseline quality analysis is a requirement to conduct shelf life testing at the FIC.
