So I am stuck and need some support.
I produce Arepa's (Corn sandwich) with Mozzarella cheese.
When being cooked there passed through an oven cooking at over 250F and then a cooling tunnel and then received and placed on trays until they are cooled down to move into the cooler..
Our PH and water activity is: (this is the results with mozzarella cheese, which is not applied to the arepa until it has cooled down to about 41-47F)
So, the million dollar question is, would this be considered a heat treated food since it is baked??? Does it fal under the NTCS?
Please any help or suggestion will be appreciated!
