Colour measurement for development, process control, and quality control of foodstuffs
Homogenous products such as duck or chicken can be measured using the 8mm aperture of the CR-400 and the optical glass or acrylic target mask to prevent ingress to the measuring aperture. The 50mm aperture of the CR-410 is more suited to in-homogenous products such as marbled beef, or fish. If desired, software can be used to create a user index allowing for user friendly sorting or grading, less subjective and faster than visual assessment and physical colour charts.
Manufacturers of bread and baked products can utilise the purpose-built BC-10 Plus with 8mm aperture to measure either Baking Contrast Units (BCU) or L*a*b* colour directly on the device. This small and easy-to-use instrument offers users data driven process control and QC.
Biscuits or similar products like rice cakes with greater levels of surface texture or inhomogeneous nature can be measured using the CR-410, allowing the measurement to average a larger area and provide colour data that more accurately matches visual perception.
