TECHNICAL TIPS: knowing the aw

AW (activity of the water) is an essential value, and it will give us a hint of the shelf life or durability of a product.

Water contained in food can be tied or free. Measuring AW will let us know if there’s free water in a product. Free water is the water available for microorganisms to live and reproduce.

The AW value can be measured in a device called an AW meter. The value is measured on a scale from 0 (no free water) to 1 (pure water).
