Snack and baked food products are particularly sensitive to moisture — the wrong moisture levels can lead to food spoilage, sogginess, staleness, and even altered taste.
The most effective way to ensure the long-term performance of hygroscopic materials like wood (organic materials that naturally contain water) is to carefully measure and adjust moisture content to achieve an equilibrium moisture content (or EMC) before using the material in production.

I’ve just returned from an incredible experience meeting hundreds of scientists and industrial professionals at Analytica, the International Trade Fair for Laboratory Technology, Analysis and Biotechnology in Munich, Germany. It’s never simple to compete against 1,100 exhibitors. However, it’s a little easier when you are in the country of the Hoffbrauhaus… I always underestimate how much scientists love their beer!
