  • ρWM = ρM - relative water/matrix proton mass fraction
  • Foods - complex mixtures of macromolecules, solutes, solvents, and plasticizers
  • Intermediate mobility and liquid signals - described by iscrete number of exponential function
  • Moisture-sorption isotherms - enabling reliable predictions of shelf life
  • Molecular mobility interpretation - gravimetric nuclear magnetic resonance
  • Use of moisture - sorption isotherms characterizing hydration properties
  • Water - solvent, plasticizer
  • Water-soluble sugar - responsible for presence of mobilized fraction
