The Most Important Tips for Transporting Honey
Freshliance Fresh Tag 1D single use USB temperature sensor can be used in recording and monitoring the temperature of honey during transportation.
Honey is highly stable against microbial growth because of its low water activity, low moisture content, low pH, and antimicrobial constituents. So honey is hard to spoil, however, it is susceptible to physical and chemical changes over time. It can lose its aroma and flavor and it also tends to darken. Because the preservation of honey is dependent upon temperature, properly transported and stored honey, though, can keep a good look to earn customers’ favor and retain its quality for much longer shelf life.
Honey proved by tests to be affected by excessive heat would be down-graded for industrial use at a low price. Processed honey should be stored between 64-75° F (18-24° C). Honey can be exposed to higher temperatures for brief periods; however, heat damage is cumulative so heat exposure should be limited. It is best to minimize temperature fluctuations and avoid storing honey near heat sources. The recommended storage temperature for unprocessed (raw) honey is below 50° F (10° C). The ideal temperature for both unprocessed and processed honey is below 32° F (0° C). Cooler temperatures best preserve the aroma, flavor, and color of unprocessed honey.
Fresh Tag 1D single use temperature recorders for shipping can be the ideal choice for recording and monitoring temperature of honey during transportation. Fresh Tag 1D is a disposable PDF usb temperature data logger with LCD display function that makes it easy to view real-time temperature data. This disposable PDF temperature data logger has the advantages of low cost, easy operation and small space occupation. The product is made of food grade packaging materials. It is compact, light, waterproof and widely used. It is an ideal choice for monitoring and recording the temperature changes of sensitive goods during transportation. Its built-in PDF file generation function allows the logger to be plugged into a PC to generate unmodifiable PDF data reports without additional software. This report is the necessary evidence for the product owner and the cold chain carrier if the cold chain performance objection is required.
