Food Analysis with FT-NIR Spectroscopy

Quality Control of raw materials, intermediate and finished products

NIR Food Analysis

Quality control of food products

Questions and concerns regarding food quality are endless, and the demand for easy-to-use tools to monitor and ensure the integrity of foodstuffs is growing around the world.  FT-NIR is a powerful and effective technology for control of raw materials, intermediates and finished products.

Common tasks in food processing are:

  • Identification of raw materials
  • Conformity testing
  • Composition analysis

Advantages of FT-NIR spectroscopy

In contrast to most wet-chemistry and other reference methods, FT-NIR technology is quick, cost-effective, non-destructive and safe, since it does not use chemicals, solvents or gases. It simply measures the absorption of near-infrared light of the sample at different wavelengths recording molecular vibrations of all molecules containing C-H, N-H or O-H groups. By this NIR spectroscopy is the first choice for the analysis of all kind of organic materials, making it ideal for a wide variety of foodstuffs.

 

The key benefits of FT-NIR spectroscopy are:

  • non-destructive analysis
  • no sample preparation, no waste
  • no special skills required, easy sample presentation
  • no typical errors of classical lab methods
  • analysis of multiple components in less than one minute
  • suitable for any solid, semi-solid or liquid sample
