Food Processing Analysis & Control Information
Under pressure to ensure your food or beverage meets customer specifications while also increasing your plant’s yield and profitability? We can help. Use our leading near infrared (NIR) technology to quickly and accurately measure moisture, fat, protein and other constituents.
Need to see what’s inside the pipe? To measure constituents in meat, dough and other raw materials that flow through a pipe, use our guided microwave spectroscopy technology. Want to ensure your food has the proper texture? Use our viscometers, rheometers and extruders to determine viscosity, elasticity, processability and temperature-related mechanical changes of food.
The Discovery Lab at J.M. Smucker Co. tests fruit juices and purees for glucose, fructose, and sucrose, and acetic, ascorbic, and citric acids. Learn how they were able to test 50 samples in one hour using an Arena discrete analyzer.
