Knowing how long your food product will last before its quality is compromised is critical to its success. Results from shelf life testing can ensure the integrity of your brand as well as be applied to various cost reduction and R&D decisions. With our strong team of shelf life experts and flexible food testing facilities, Northland Sensory Insights can accurately and efficiently provide these vital insights.
Along with our team of experts, we utilize state-of-the-art environmental chambers that control and measure temperature and humidity at constant levels. Through the course of the study, at each evaluation interval, we can leverage any of the resources of our full-service food chemistry, microbiology or sensory laboratories to develop a comprehensive view of the state of your product. Our trained panelists evaluate samples at pre-determined time-points and rate against a known control to determine changes over time.
