What is Shelf-Life Testing

food testing labs in india
  • The focus of shelf-life testing is primarily on ingredients present in the product,
    as well as its packaging, processing, and storage details. So, it can be claimed that the shelf-life test results are valid for only those set of ingredients and conditions. If any alterations are made in any of these parameters then the test results are not valid and a new test is warranted. It must also be noted that type of testing that is conducted is extremely variable. It depends on factors such as the type of product being tested as well as the information that is being sought. The type of testing also depends on the storage conditions or to back any specific claim made on the product.

Need of Shelf-Life Testing

Contaminants Testing
  • Shelf-life testing comprises a series of tests to illustrate how food products’ parameters vary with time. A series of analytical, chemical, microbiological, and sensory testing are conducted to determine the shelf-life of the product. The shelf-life of a product is said to start once it is processed and packaged. The results of this test help manufacturers set appropriate expiration dates on their products.
