Shelf Life Evaluation

The quality, safety, nutritional and organoleptic properties change over time , these can be improved or affected by the type of process, packaging, temperature, handling, endogenous bacteria and physico- chemical changes in food.

Synergy BioTech® Laboratory can perform stability tests to determine the shelf life of foods, beverages and cosmetics according to:

  • Microbiological testing
  • Sensory evaluations
  • Accelerated shelf life tests and mathematical models:
    • Primary model, e.g. Gamma model
    • Secondary model, e.g. Arrhenius model
    • Tertiary model, e.g. ComBase®

The design and development of each project depends on the type of product, process, storage conditions, retail exposure, type of packaging and handling.

Challenge Tests

The test is performed if the food or drink produced may have an initial load of pathogenic contamination, and the food or drink support its preservation or growth during its shelf life.


  • The test consist of inoculating the product with pathogens that are endogenous to itself, we then incubate it at different temperatures simulating its recommended and abused temperature during its shelf life. Periodic analyzes are performed to assess the feasibility of growth of the initial contamination.

The design and development of each project depends on the type of product, process, storage conditions, storage exposure, type of packaging and handling.
