hi!

roy,
1.  to determine shelf-life:  best to first establish the process of the kamote chips.  and decide on the paskaging material.  then saka mo gawin yung shelf life study.
2.  to extend shelf-life:  hmm from what you said it's fried di ba?  so i would say add anti-oxidant.  but of course this may not be enough.  there are a lot of factors to consider e depending on the products, your market, etc.

have you tried the kamote chips of matahari?  they're good tho pricey.  :)

thank drew,

for the process of the kamote chips, we just peel it, slice it, cook it and pack it in plastic at appoximately 50gms each. how can i determine the shelf life for that?

how do you add the anti-oxidant? is it a chemical or a solution that you add/pour/cook to the chips? ang alam ko lng kc na anti-oxidant e Resensa Green Iced Tea (interested? PM me ;))

i'm based in angeles kaya di ko pa natikman kamote chips of matahari. but i'm very confident about the taste and quality of our own kamote chips.

thanks

roy

hi roy. 

for the anti-oxidant, first determine if you really need to add kasi syempre iba pa rin yung claim na all natural.  (which i doubt kasi you're using oil for frying hehe)

basically a product is expired if it is no longer of the desired quality or the microbiological count is over the acceptable limit.

hope i was able to answer your question

hmmm, mukhang napaka-technical na nun a, microbiological count, mukhang pang-chemist na yun. can an ordinary mortal like determine that?

the first part would mean that, we would have samples that we would observe and actually taste test them as we record the number of days? ganun ba yun?

thanks again,

roy

hi maneki,

one of our 'side business' is yung chocolate lollipops and other chocolate products. sa ngayon we're getting our supplies and other materials from chocolate lovers. baka alam mo lng, mayroon din daw kasi  makukunan ng supplies at materials sa binondo. i'm looking particularly for different molds, kasi halos nakita ko lahat ng molde nila sa chocolate lovers e, and also packaging too

hi rafi,

di ba mayroon ka rin molds ng rugrats, winnie d pooh and other characters? nakalimutan ko na kasi e, san mo nga ba nabili yun?

hi charles, drew, et al,

mayroon din kasi kaming bagong product ngayon, kamote chips (yes! the lowly kamote), at lahat naman ng napagbilhan namin at nakatikim na are one in saying na masarap siya. at sigurado pang healthy at walang preservatives. actually, ngluto lng one-time ang wife ko as meryenda. then sabi ko, itry ko ibenta. nabenta naman, although pa-unti-unit nga lang.

ang tanong ko ngayon, if you can help me, paano namin madedetermine at mapo-prolong yung shelf life? although di naman siya nagtatagal dahil, sa akin pa lang ubos na ;D  kasi parang pringles o chocolate siya na, the more you eat, the more you want!

and any other tips that you can give me.

thanks

roy


About suppliers in Binondo, diba Divisoria ang tinutukoy mo?  Meron sa Sto. Cristo ng mga supplies and molds.  Yong sa Chocolate Lovers meron local at imported molds.  Yong imported, Wilton brand yon galing Illinois.  Pero meron designs na ginagaya rin naman ng Chocolate Lovers kaya madalas meron local version na mas mura. Yong mga cartoon characters Wilton din yon. Kung by the thousands meron akong na meet sa WTC na gumagawa ng chocolate molds actually sila ang supplier ng Chocolate Lovers.  Pero dapat your own design at thousands nga.  Sa chocolates naman depende kung aling brand ang gusto mo, kung maramihan puede kang umorder sa mismong pagawaan.  E.g. Goya, Twin Oaks (factory sa Bulacan).  They are listed sa yellow pages, check mo sa website.

Nasa WTC din ang distributor ng Wilton products last Bakery World at Bakery Fair 2005.  Nag retail sila doon, pero pag sa office na nila they will only entertain wholesalers. 

About the camote chips, gano katagal ba ang gusto mong shelf-life?  Kung days lang try mo mag pack tapos open mo after few days at lasahan mo kung makunat na or maanta na yong oil niya.

thanks maneki. oo nga pala, divisoria nga pala. nalilito na rin kasi ako. try ko maghanap sa sto. cristo kapag pupunta ako dun. mahirap kasing maghanap sa divisoria kung di alam ang pupuntahan di ba, madi-distract ka sa dami ng makikita mo, kaya dapat specific yung pupuntahan mo at saka na lang tumingin ng iba kapag may time pa.

nag-eexist pa pala yung goya. nagsu-supply din ba sila ng chocolate blocks gaya ng chocolate lovers? try ko rin hanapin website nila.

yung kamote chips, ganun nga ginagawa namin. nilalagyan namin ng date yung plastic para ma-monitor namin.

thanks again.

Roy,

Divisoria is part of Binondo naman.  About Goya oo existing pa siya, isa yon sa products na binebenta ng Choc. Lovers.  Pero mas gusto ko ang lasa ng Twin Oaks.  Sa cholocate molds naman, meron ibang nagbebenta non, Actron, pero mahal kasi pang professional at factory kasi P2,500 ang isa, hard plastic.  Ganon ang ginamit nong nagturo sa amin sa TLRC.  Kung sa dami ng choices marami talaga sa Choc. Lovers, sa Divisoria konti lang. 
I was asking Charles nga kung dadaan siya ng Illinois, para bumili sa Wilton. Kaso hindi raw. Dati kasi ang sister ko namili don (libre shipping kasi pinadala siya ng company sa US).  Kaya nagbenta rin ako dati ng moulds na excess ko.  You can also check www.wilton.com for their products.
Minsan nga pala sa store ni Heny Sison ako bumili ng choco moulds pero matagal na yon.  Ibang brand kaya iba ang designs.

Roy,

Ilan na bang chocolates ang p-no-produce ninyo?  Maramihan na ba at regular ninyong ginagawa?  Kasi sa Twin Oaks dati nagtanong ako, kahit 20 kilos or 1 box puede kang kumuha.  Since nasa Pampanga ka at sa Bulacan lang ang Twin Oaks mas maganda dumiretso ka na sa kanila.  Go direct ka na sa distributor baka sila pa ang mag deliver sa iyo.  Masyadong malayo ang Choc. Lovers sa inyo.  Added cost pa ang transportation.  Unless meron regular na dumadaan doon. 
Maraming gumagawa ng chocolate blocks, imported and local. Mas masarap ang imported pero mas mahal.  Kung sa local sabi ko nga I like Twin Oaks, ang bittersweet niya tamang tama ang lasa, di tulad ng Goya matamis parin. 
Ang mga company naman dito sa Manila karamihan meron dealer or offices sa province kaya mag inquire ka. 
About Divisoria, oo magulo nga mga store doon, di tulad ng Choc. Lovers, madali mong makita hinahanap mo. 
About boxes, you can go straight to RM boxes, pero min order is 1,000 pcs.  Siguro naman meron pagawaan ng boxes diyan sa Pampanga.  Magtanong ka sa mga printing press.

Starting a homebased business is one of the answers to those people who wants to earn an extra income but doesn't have a big capital to start with.

Hi Maneki,

Sa ngayon, di pa ganun karami yung production namin. usually pag may ocassions lang kaya nagtitiyaga ako bumiyahe sa Chocolate Lovers. Medyo may kalayuan nga lang kaya sinasabay ko na lang pag may official trip ako to Manila. May contact no. ka Twin Oaks? I'll try to search too sa net kung may website sila.  I'm really planning to make chocolate may main product because of it's versatility at walang pinipiling season. And I have lots of plans and ideas for this.

May nagtitinda ng choco blocks, molds at boxes dito sa Angeles kaya lang ang quality ay di ganun kaganda tulad ng Choco Lovers at limited lang designs nila ng molds.  Bumibili lang ako ng choco blocks dun kapag nag-e-expirement ako ng mga bago designs/ideas although di ko binebenta commercially. Mahirap ng masira sa mga kakaunti na nga lang na customers ko.

Anyway, thanks for the tips that you're giving me. I really appreciate them.

Regards

Roy

hi maneki,

i hope mag reply ka dito sa posting ko, kasi ang dami ko nang postings, walang reply... pero positive ako sasagot ka, kasi nakita ko sa mga previous postings ng other members masipag ka sumagot. Anyway, I am also a food enthusiast, and i am looking for a training on pastry baking, yung di naman sana costly/expensive ang fees. Thanks for your help and for your support sa mga katulad naming baguhan sa small-scale business.

regards,
bing
