Shelf Life Testing (Real Time)

Shelf Life Testing (Real Time)

Regular price $ 2,650.00

When developing a formula with us, we are able to offer you a 6 month shelf life from a safety perspective thanks to the internal tests we perform, such as our water activity level test, and our in-depth, QA document-controlled ingredient knowledge.

If you would like to increase the shelf life of your product, we will need to ship sample product out to a third party Food Testing Laboratory for microbiological shelf life testing. These tests often enable our clients to achieve shelf lives up to 12-18 months. However, we cannot guarantee any shelf life over 6 months. Only the official testing can do this.

Shelf life testing stores the product at 25 ± 2 degrees C and performs the following tests:

Day 0

Water Activity
Salmonella
E. coli
Staphylococcus Aureus
Listeria
Aerobic Plate Count
Yeast / Mold
Organoleptic Analysis

Days 14, 90, 120, 180, 240, 300, 365.

Aerobic Plate Count
Yeast / Mold
Organoleptic Analysis

At the end of this process, you will receive a final short report on the findings.

The below price INCLUDES the large scale efficiency test and requisite product from YouBar for this testing to be performed.
