However, you may be wondering how long they last?
The shelf life of any shortbread cookie depends on a few factors, including its water activity and moisture content.
Water activity is a measure of the amount of moisture available for microbial growth in a food product. Shortbread cookies typically have a low water activity, which means that they are less susceptible to microbial growth and spoilage. This, in turn, contributes to their longer shelf life.
Moisture content is another important factor that affects the shelf life of shortbread cookies. If shortbread cookies are exposed to moisture, they can become soft and lose their crispy texture. This can also lead to microbial growth and spoilage.
Our nan khatais have a water activity of 0.3651 and a moisture content of 1.93%.
A conservative estimate of the shelf life of our khatais is 3 to 6 months, when stored in a cool, dry place. We also recommend keeping away from direct sunlight.
We are working with a food science team to perform a formal shelf life test and will update this page when we get the results.
So, if you're looking for a delicious treat that lasts, our khatais are a great choice. Just be sure to store them in a cool, dry place to maximize their shelf life.
