Why run accelerated shelf-life studies?

Shelf-life studies

Food producers are constantly creating and updating product formulations to
meet consumer’s shifting preferences. Enter any grocery store and you will see a
produce section which looks like an oriental bazaar. Browse the shelves and note the
new sections which stock trending categories such as Organic, Gluten-free, Low-fat,
Low-sodium, Free-from, Vegan and Local. Producers also have to amend processes
for new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations and ingredients for updated
nutrient labeling. To assure product quality and safety for their customers, food
manufacturers should run shelf-life studies on all new or revised formulations.
