An advanced version of the Slade and Levine (1991) plot is given later in this review (see Figure 35). Slade and Levine (1991) noted that the overall shape of the resulting curve resembled that of a typical sorption isotherm for a single food material, with a few exceptions (raisin, bread, and cheese; similar results are observed in Figure 17, with the addition of honey). Slade and Levine (1991) noted that raisins exhibit a lower aw than expected for their moisture content. They attributed this anomalous behavior to desorption hysteresis, as raisins are produced by the dehydration of grapes.

A food package), they will over time equilibrate to a single aw, with component 1 gaining water and becoming soggy and component 2 losing water and becoming hard. , Twinkies). This same principle of equalizing water activities applies to the interaction of a food material with its environment, as influenced by the packaging material selected. 001 in. thick), no significant transfer of moisture with the environment will occur. , plastic films) packaging, the food will gain moisture if the aw of the food is less than the relative humidity of the air or lose moisture if the aw of the food is greater than the relative humidity of the air.

For many foods, the change in aw with time is relatively small and of little consequence within the shelf life of the food. Some foods change as a function of time in an attempt to reach equilibrium. For example, it is well documented that if an amorphous (noncrystalline) material, such as a sugar-based candy glass, is held at a high enough relative humidity and temperature for a suYcient length of time, the amorphous material will release the water it gained, and perhaps the water it originally contained, and crystallize (to a thermodynamically more stable state).
