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 bar/bite 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 bars 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 number of bars from this efficiency test to be yielded for this testing to be performed.
