Natural Shelf Life Extensions

Nothing says delicious like “fresh”. Unfortunately, there are many elements that can take away from freshness. Time, heat, light, and a variety of other environmental factors can damage product freshness. Fortunately, we are able to tap into our vast knowledge and experience base for natural and healthy ways of shelf life extension.

Here are just some of the products we have aided with shelf life extension:

Shelf Life Testing and Studies

Siena Development also offer laboratory testing for shelf life validation. We can help you design your Shelf Test and Study in such a way to meet all the FDA and USDA requirements.¬† Each product is unique and will require it’s own specific plan of testing.

  • pH
  • Water activity
  • Aerobic plate count
  • Coliform
  • E. Coli
  • Listeria Monocytogenes
