      Shipping heat sensitive items

      Looking for tips and feedback on personal experiences on how you package and ship items which may not do too well if exposed to heat. I'm not thinking about items which need refrigeration.

      You would need to insulate them of course, perhaps with tight fitting polystyrene packaging. You also need to consider that in hotter climes in the summer months, environmentally controlled shipping may be a must, even if refrigeration is not.

      Good advice from Eyebuy. I know that some food products are made a little differently according to the local climate. As a debt ridden student I tried to cheat on x'mas shopping costs by buying brand name chocolate from a market trader. Everyone complained that it tasted 'different'. I realised later that this was because the original consumer market was a much warmer country.

      Yes, this can be a problem. Peas for instance have differing amounts of calcium added depending on the mineral content of the intended market. Cooked in the wrong water and they can come out like bullets. Spreads (butter replacements) are different too-some having more hydrogenation depending on how hot the place is, so that they don't melt too easily.
