Three year extended shelf life benefits customers

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In a study spanning over 3 years, Davisco detected no significant change in flavor, aroma, color or nutritional composition in sweet dairy whey and deproteinized whey.  The study was conducted in the Davisco warehouse, matching the real-world conditions products would face prior to shipping to customers. By tracking changes in composition, color, flavor, aroma and solubility, they demonstrated only minimal changes over a three year shelf life. Davisco's heat-sealed 4 mil thickness polyethylene liner is an excellent moisture barrier, and after 3 years the moisture will only rise 0.1 to 0.3% within sealed bags. Because the moisture ranges in Davisco's specifications lies within the zone of maximum stability for whey powders as defined by the theoretical moisture monolayer value, no significant changes in these measures occurred.

If it were not for the declared shelf life printed on the product, it would be almost impossible for an analytical chemist to tell the difference between a 3 year old Davisco product and a 1 month old product through random sampling of lots within our specification range, using these measures.

A longer shelf life with Davisco whey powders will benefit warehousing, logistics, supply chain and manufacturers all the way to retail and consumer products.  Customers of Davisco's whey powders can expect excellent quality for the full 3 year shelf life. That is the quality assurance that Davisco promises and delivers.
