Water activity has been integral in defining potentially hazardous foods for many years. In addition, the U.S. FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) emphasizes the importance of preventive controls to reduce or eliminate food safety hazards. Designing a product with an intrinsically low water activity is one such preventative control, either by itself or in combination with other preventative controls, commonly referred to as the hurdle method.
This webcast will discuss the role of water activity and hurdle technology as tools to implement FSMA-based preventative controls.
· Understand changes that will result from new FSMA rules in regards to how water activity may be used to control food safety hazards.
· Understand the hurdle technology concept.
· Learn how water activity and the hurdle technology can be used effectively to meet the preventive control requirements of FSMA.
