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.
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:
This brochure will give you an overview on the benefits of FT-NIR in a modern food quality laboratory. You will learn which are the most common products and parameters to analyze and how the measurements are carried out.
It covers the following application fields:
