Shelf life is the time, under specified storage conditions, during which a food product maintains acceptable quality as defined by specific criteria for critical product attributes.  Being able to determine shelf life accurately is key information for manufacturers and product developers.  Assigning a shelf life that is artificially long risks exposing consumers to undesirable product, with potentially catastrophic damage to brand and product image at minimum.  This short course will give students a basic understanding of shelf life and how a shelf life study is designed.  At the conclusion of this course you will earn a certificate of completion that you can download and keep for your records. There will also be an option to download a PDF copy of the lesson content to keep and use as a reference.  This course will be available to you for 1 year from the date of purchase. Read more
