Find pet food’s ‘moisture sweet spot’

Webinar will explain use of water activity to manage safety and quality

Most pet food products have a “moisture sweet spot” – an ideal range that maximizes quality and profit while keeping the product safe from mold and microbes.  Water activity is the best way to find that sweet spot – and monitor to make sure you always produce to that specification.

Register at https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/149511489?linknumber=website to attend the webinar, “Update on Using Water Activity to Manage Safety and Quality in Pet food,” which will be held Tuesday, December 9, 2014, at 10 a.m. CST. This webinar is sponsored by Decagon and presented by WATT Global Media.

By attending the webinar, you will learn:

  • How to identify a pet food product’s “moisture sweet spot”
  • How testing can reveal a product’s moisture secrets
  • How to use water activity to maximize safety, quality, and profit in your products

The speaker for this webinar will be Brady Carter, who has been a senior research scientist at Decagon since 2004. He has a master’s degree in crop science with an emphasis in cereal chemistry. His current research is focused on developing a hydrothermal time-based shelf life model. He is a popular presenter on measuring water activity in food.
