Cereals are the cornerstone of the daily nutrition for most people around the world. The Flour & Milling industry plays an essential part in turning cereals into flours for human consumption.
Bruker offers solutions for the Flour & Milling industry for the analysis of wheat, various flour types as well as co-products based on FT-NIR Spectroscopy - from small, easy-to-use benchtop spectrometers to complete online monitoring systems.
Ready to use calibration packages give you results in seconds and are a highly cost-effective solution compared to conventional testing methods.
Foreign bodies found in feed products need to be identified to be able to determine their source for taking corrective action. XRF and FT-IR quickly identify these small physical contaminant materials on the production floor or in the lab. Whereas XRF spectroscopy is ideal for metals, ceramics, stones and glass, the complementary FT-IR technology works best for plastics, rubbers, and other organic materials.
TD-NMR relaxometry can be applied to determine the water mobility in bread and how it can be correlated to different performance (freshness/softness) of the final product. Protons inside a starch granule have a lower mobility and, therefore, lower relaxation times than protons outside the granule. The correlation between proton mobility on a molecular scale and the macroscopic textural properties of the final product, make TD-NMR a suitable technique to predict product quality.
