APPLICATION BRIEF

Dairy Powders analysis with Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIR)

Introduction

Analysis of dairy powders is of great importance to production plants producing them and to those using them as ingredients. Accurate control of various constituents enables the producer to optimize production, meet specifications and ensure significant savings. The Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIR) technique is well-suited for analysis of dairy powders, but past instrument limitations have not allowed users to reap the full benefits of the technology. This application brief demonstrates how PerkinElmer DA 7250 is ideally suited for analysis of dairy powders and their constituents with high accuracy to formulate better products and meet various functional and compositional requirements.
