Good Day,

 

My company manufactures cooked fruit fillings for pies and pastries.  I am looking for generally acceptable limits for yeast and mold on products for inclusion on specification sheets.

 

Thank you!

Hi tastemaker,

 

:welcome:

 

You will need to provide more information. How is the fruit filling packed and stored? What is the shelf life?

 

You might find some useful information in this discussion about yoghurts (which may contain fruit conserves)

 

If you search yeast and molds on the website I'm sure that there will be many other related topics that may be of interest.

 

Kind regards,

 

Tony

Hi tastemaker,

 

If the filling is cooked/pasteurized” then the level should obviously be initially low, eg <10 cfu/g

Subsequent changes / tolerances will  depends on factors as noted in Tony's post / linked yoghurt thread.

 

I had a look around the net for generic micro. specs for  “fruit fillings” without significant success.

 

In addition to yoghurt thread mentioned above you can get some ideas for other products (raw/RTE) from this oldish but still useful compilation –

Hi tastemaker,

 

I noticed this enticing research paper on varieties of  Y&M in refrigerated, fruit filled pastries which may give some ideas about limits -

i did wonder as to the fate of the unused portions.
