If you're reading this, you're probably in the health food industry.  You may be a manufacturer or producer, a packaging company, or even a distributor.  Regardless of your role, you know that health food consumers are a particular bunch, perhaps just a little bit more picky than the general shopping population. They have certain expectations about your products and, to a lesser but still important degree, your product packaging as well.

Packaging Granola: How Long Will It Store?

by David Marinac | September 24, 2013 | 0 Comments | Health Food Packaging

Granola does not go bad quickly. Even under worst conditions – when it has been stored in open jars in a humid and temperate climate – granola will remain good to eat for many days. Some manufacturers sell granola with a shelf life of six months. If their granola can stay fit to consume for six months, it is safe to assume that homemade granola kept under good conditions too can stay edible for this long. So the answer to how long can granola be stored is – it depends. It depends on conditions like humidity, insects, atmospheric impurities, and the ingredients used to make granola. If granola can be protected from all the above mentioned conditions and if the ingredients used to make granola are not easily oxidized, you can store it safely for months.

Do Baby Food Pouches Explode in Checked Luggage?

Most modern pouches are designed to stay intact under the air pressure that is created during an air flight. But that does not mean your baby food pouches will survive checked baggage for sure. Rough handling can break them. Or there can be a number of factors completely unrelated to air pressure that can puncture your baby food pouches. It is advisable to keep them in a zip-lock, so that even if they explode (for any reason), you don't end up with food spilled all over your luggage.
