Online Measurement of Snackfood Seasoning Addition using Modern NIR Technology


Customer complaints and costly product waste are common when erroneous amounts of seasoning are delivered in the process. The Perten DA 7440 On-line NIR instrument uses modern diode array technology to provide real-time and continuous measurement of seasoning addition in many types of snack foods, helping to reduce both waste and customer claims. Additional parameters like moisture and fat contents can be analysed at the same time.
