Every food manufacturer is concerned about shelf life, as are the major retailers and ingredient suppliers.

This book begins with six chapters reviewing the principles of shelf-life evaluation, followed by ten chapters on a number of selected food products such as chilled yogurt and other dairy desserts, seafood, and meat. The latest edition has been expanded to include new chapters on HACCP, preservation technology and shelf life, and minimally processed, ready-to-eat ambient-stable meat products. Sufficient information on the principles and practice of shelf life evaluation has been included for the beginner as well as for those who are more experienced in this area.

Vegan is a step ahead of being a vegetarian. They not only avoid eating meat, but they also avoid eating or using anything from the animal kingdom. They do not even consume milk, eggs or any dairy products. They look into all the details of the ingredients before buying a product. Bread, marshmallows, chewing gums, salad dressing, mayonnaise all of which contain some animal products that are not consumed by vegans. They are very strict about their diet. Their doctrine is saying No cruelty to animals. Many of the processed foods, sauces, ketchup, salad dressings, cereals, and crackers contain artificial sweeteners. These are very similar to our table sugar. But they are quite harmful to the body if taken in excess over a long period of time. Either sugar or any artificial sweetener in excess will cause obesity or even lead to diabetes. Large fructose corn syrup is an artificial sweetener that is applied in most of the prepared foods. As far as possible avoid using it. Try to maintain a healthy diet.
