Guidelines for Shelf-Life Testing of Food and Ingredients for Key Quality Attributes

Objective
Shelf-life testing is typically thought of as a process used to determine a code date value that will go into a specification. Although this is a key outcome, study data can also be useful in addressing end-user quality questions and in proactively communicating expected quality changes as a function of age and storage environment. The practices outlined in this document are intended to provide a starting place toward building a common basis for the generation of shelf-life data.
