Book Description :

Complying with food regulations and, more importantly, quality standards, requires practical and reliable methods to estimate a product’s shelf life. Emphasizing the importance of the consumer’s perception of when food has reached the end of its shelf life, Sensory Shelf Life Estimation of Food Products provides a tool for adequately predicting sensory shelf life (SSL). The book delineates the basics of sensory analysis and how it applies to shelf-life studies and includes discussions of experimental design aspects, survival analysis methodology, and its extensions. It provides detailed instructions and software functions for performing SSL estimations, accompanied by data sets and the R Statistical Package functions that are available for download. The author presents the cut-off point methodology used to estimate SSL when the survival analysis methods get complicated. He includes a chapter on accelerated storage covering kinetics, calculations of prediction confidence intervals and potential pitfalls. He also examines extensions of survival analysis statistics to other areas of food quality such as optimum concentration of ingredients and optimum cooking temperatures. Microbiologically stable foods, such as biscuits or mayonnaise, will have their shelf-life defined by the changes in their sensory properties. Many fresh foods, such as yogurt or pasta, after relatively prolonged storage may be microbiologically safe to eat but rejected due to changes in their sensory properties. Shelf life in most food products is determined by sensory issues instead of microbiological or chemical concerns. This book offers key techniques for experimental design, storage, consumer testing procedures, and calculations. It includes methods for accelerated storage experiments, thoroughly explains statistical data treatment, and includes practical examples.

Book Description :

Shelf life, a term recognised in EU/UK food legislation, may bedefined as the period of time for which a food product will remainsafe and fit for use, provided that it is kept in defined storageconditions. During this period, the product should retain itsdesired sensory, chemical, physical, functional and microbiologicalcharacteristics, as well as accurately comply with any nutritionalinformation printed on the label. Shelf lifetherefore refers to a number of different aspects; each foodproduct has a microbiological shelf life, a chemical shelf life,and a sensory (or organoleptic) shelf life. These categoriesreflect the different ways in which a food product will deteriorateover time. Ultimately the shelf life of a food product is intendedto reflect the overall effect of these different aspects. Shelf life has always been an important facet of industrial foodpreparation and production, as food and drink are often produced inone area and then distributed to other areas for retailing andconsumption. Globalised distribution and supply chains make itimperative that food should survive the transit between producerand consumer – as a perishable commodity, food carries a highrisk of spoilage. As such, a realistic, workable and reproducibleshelf life has to be determined every time a new food product isdeveloped and marketed; shelf life determination of food has becomean integral part of food safety, quality assurance, productdevelopment, marketing, and consumer behaviour. Dominic Mans Shelf Life, now in a revised and updatedsecond edition, encompasses the core considerations about shelflife. Section 1 introduces shelf life, describes its relationshipto food safety, and provides answers to the frequently askedquestions around shelf life determination and testing which are amanagers chief concerns. Section 2 covers the science of thevarious ways in which food deteriorates and spoils, including thephysical, chemical and microbiological changes. Section 3 looks atshelf life in practice, using case studies of different products toillustrate how shelf life may be determined in real life settings.This book will be invaluable to both practitioners and students inneed of a succinct and comprehensive overview of shelf lifeconcerns and topics.
