Shelf Life Extension of Kway Teow

Kway Teow manufactured by local manufacturers such as Leong Guan Food Manufacture are usually bulk-packed for distribution to wet markets and food stalls in low barrier polyethylene (PE) bags. The lack of proper barrier properties of the PE bags coupled with the warm and humid climate meant that kway teow last for only two to three days from production. In a situation like this, the most immediate band aid response would be to use preservatives for shelf life extension. However, the Singapore Sale of Food Act prohibits the use of any Class 2 chemical preservatives in kway teow because it is a staple food which may be consumed on a daily basis. Moreover, Leong Guan was not keen to use any artificial preservatives due to consumers’ adversion to such additives.

Faced with this uphill task, Leong Guan Food Manufacture approached Food Innovation & Resource Centre for advice on extending the shelf life of their products.
