Food manufacturing at high altitudes

Asked January 7, 2016, 12:26 PM EST

Hello,

I'm looking for an expert that could help me with food manufacturing at high altitudes. I work for a company called Mary’s Gone Crackers, which is in an organic, gluten free snack food manufacturer. If someone could contact me asap, I'd appreciate that.

Hi Alex,

As I mentioned in our phone call, Nita Crisp crackers have been manufactured in Fort Collins (5000 feet above sea level) for several years. Here is a link to their website: http://www.nitacrisp.com/

Here is a link to general information about High Altitude Food Preparation from CSU Extension: http://extension.colostate.edu/topic-areas/nutrition-food-safety-health/high-altitude-food-preparation-p41/ For making crackers at higher altitudes, slightly more liquid may improve texture.

Dr. Martha Stone, faculty member at CSU, is also a good resource for your questions: martha.stone@colostate.edu.

I hope this information is helpful.
