Shelf Life Testing (Real Time)

This item is exclusively available to our custom recipe clients. When developing a bar with us, we are able to offer you a full 6 month shelf life from the moment your bar recipe is completed thanks to the internal tests we perform, such as our water activity level test.

If you would like to increase the shelf life of your bars, we will need to ship them out to a third party Food Testing Laboratory for microbiological shelf life testing. These tests often enable our clients to achieve bar shelf lives up to 1 year. 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.
