Food product shelf stability overview of sourdough-risen flatbread

This paper aims to provide an overview of food preservation related to the shelf-life and stability of food products including sourdough-risen flatbread (injera). Understanding the properties and composition of injera products enables one for a better option for maintaining food quality at desirable level of properties or nature for their maximum benefits. Food quality loss can be described in terms of as environmental factors which include temperature, relative humidity, light, mechanical stress and total pressure such as compositional factors, concentration of reactive species, microorganism levels, catalysts, reaction inhibitors, pH and water activity, as well. There are a range of points in the food chain where manufacturers can influence the mix of intrinsic and extrinsic factors which affect shelf-life. Advances in processing and packaging materials and techniques have increased the options available for maintaining quality and for improving the shelf-life of foods.
