Using BINDER Environmental Simulation Chambers for Shelf-Life Testing in the Food Industry
23 Oct 2014
Social change has influenced the food industry, which is under massive pressure with ever shorter development times. Determining shelf-life is of particular importance because many foods are discarded while still edible and only because the "best before" date has expired. BINDER Environmental Simulation Chambers can be used to simulate an accelerated shelf-life through increased temperatures and higher humidity from which the actual shelf-life is then derived. This white paper explores trends in consumer behavior and how the food industry has changed in industrialized countries.
