Quality Control of Olives by Near-Infrared Spectroscopy and AssureID Software

Introduction

Olive oil is an increasingly popular food product worldwide, with global production exceeding 3.0 million tons in 2011 and showing steady annual growth. Despite these huge volumes, however, margins are relatively small in olive oil production so quick and easy analysis of oil quality is vital to maintain process efficiency. Rapid, reliable analysis can contribute to process and quality improvements in numerous ways.
