METER Group Food Scientists to Present New Research on Powdered Foods

Webinar, “Why Powders Misbehave,” will address misrepresentative labeling,
risks of microbial growth, health hazards, product instability and recalls

PULLMAN, Wash., Feb. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — METER Group Lead Food Scientist, Dr. Zachary Cartwright, and METER Group R&D Lab Manager, Mary Galloway, will present findings from two projects exploring powder mixing and chemical stability in powders, respectively during a live webcast on February 23, 2023 at 12:00 PM ET.

  • Examples of how myriad companies accidentally misrepresent their products’ functional food benefits;
  • The microbial risks of low-moisture foods and dangerous misconceptions;
  • The multitude of factors that influence powder stability and which ones are most important to watch; and
