Degradation is the undesirable change of a product or ingredient. It can take many forms in food products, including moisture absorption, caking, microbial growth, or breakage. These undesirable changes often lead to non-uniformity, resulting in lost revenue caused by rework, scrapped product, or downgrading of products. They can also lead to customer complaints and loss of market share.
