  • Become soggy, rubbery and lose their crispness
  • Loss of appeal, taste and flavour
  • Reduction in shelf life

Causes of Uncontrolled Humidity

In the biscuit manufacturing unit, the hot and fresh biscuits are cooled to ambient temperature before packing. Also, the packing rate is lower than biscuit production rate, the unpacked biscuits are shifted to a temporary store where they are exposed to the surrounding humid air.

Therefore it becomes essential that the humidity in the store-room (hot room) to be controlled to a level so that the quality of the biscuits is not spoiled.

General Recommendation

It is recommended to maintain the relative humidity (inside the temporary store ) at  30 to 35% at ambient temperature, to overcome the problem of moisture gain.
