    In freeze Thaw Stability test, if an emulsion is stable for one, two or three cycles, it shows how long that product will be stable in room temperature?

    Freeze Thaw stability testing won’t really tell you that. 
    It is an exaggerated test attempting to simulate what might happen to a product during shipping from warehouse to warehouse to store shelf. 
    If there is separation during the test that means it will probably happen at room temperature but it might not.
