Water Activity in Foods
Bell Flood and Christine M. Fontana, Shelly J? Capacitance hygrometers consist of two charged plates separated by a polymer membrane dielectric.
Fundamentals and Applications
Water activity a w is the partial vapor pressure of water in a substance divided by the standard state partial vapor pressure of water. In the field of food science , the standard state is most often defined as the partial vapor pressure of pure water at the same temperature. Using this particular definition, pure distilled water has a water activity of exactly one. As temperature increases, a w typically increases, except in some products with crystalline salt or sugar. Higher a w substances tend to support more microorganisms. Bacteria usually require at least 0.
