Supra-Biotic Stability in Hot Humid Climate
During stability testing, microbiological parameters and water activity of the capsules are being measured.
To what extent must SupraBiotic be made resistant to the climate in Southeast Asia?
SupraBiotic must be stable in very hot and humid climates which means temperatuures above 40 degrees Celsius and humidity over 90% over extended periods of time. The expected shelf life of Supra-Biotic is 24 months. The important aspect of getting Supra-Biotic longer shelf life in South East Asian region is packaging it in a humidity proof packaging such as full aluminum package in order to keep the content of L. plantarum MCC1 useful lactic acid bacterium alive and at a high Colony Forming Unit (CFU) count at the end of the shelf life.
