Multi-facet characterization quantifies humidity’s impact on food powders
For many dry foodstuffs the ingress of even small quantities of water can compromise product performance. Granular foods — such as instant coffee, sugars and gravy granules — can all change, with the uptake of water, from relatively free-flowing, easily manageable powders to a far less desirable clumped or even solid mass. Knowing when — and to what extent — to control moisture depends in the first instance on understanding how a powder responds to humidity.
