Food items are required to be consumed in a precise state, and any deterioration to the form leads to loss in their appeal. For example, biscuits can not be consumed when they are soggy or powdered products like milk powder, coffee, etc. may become sticky and lumpy making them difficult to consume. Many of these problems are related to the high moisture content in the air.
Food products take moisture from the air and absorb it. Micro-organisms found in food use the water in the air to work and multiply leading to spoilage of food.
Therefore, for the food and beverages industry, it becomes very critical to maintain a right level of RH i.e. 50-55%. Proper precautions are required to be taken at various stages, like from the raw material storage to manufacturing process to packaging and distribution of the products. Each stage brings with it a scare of moisture attack, therefore, making it really essential that proper humidity control precautions are taken.
Listed below are some of the damages high moisture in the air can cause to food products:
– Product spoilage due to insufficient drying with moist air
– Lumping and cracking of powdery material
– Organic corrosion due to mold
