Determination of Water Activity - Food Science Toolbox

2018-10-10  Objective: To determine water activity (aW) of food samples. Background: Apart from moisture content, it is also very important to check for water activity. Water activity tells you how active the water is in a food system. Is the water free to move around or is it bound? Water can be bound by other food

Water Activity in Food DRINC

2017-6-19  Water in food which is not bound to food molecules can support the growth of bacteria, yeasts and molds (fungi). The term water activity (aw) refers to this unbound water. The water activity of a food is not the same thing as its moisture content. Although moist foods are likely to have greater water activity than are dry foods, this is not always so; in fact a variety of

Water Activity Measurement and Analysis

Water activity is a thermodynamic measure of water expressed as the vapor pressure of water in a sample divided by vapor pressure of pure water at a given temperature. Water Activity is based on a scale from 0.0 to 1.0. The more unbound water we have the more likelihood we have of microbial spoilage. Water Activity (aw) Meters measure the ...
