Durum Wheat Analysis
Durum quality is not only important for the final quality of pasta and couscous, but for all stakeholders in the supply chain.
Here is a review of quality perceived by seed companies, grain dealers, farmers, milling industry, pasta industry and consumers. VideometerLab measures a number of important quality parameters throughout the whole supply chain.
• Mold and infections, primarely fusarium
• Adulteration with, for example, common wheat
• Size and shape distribution, uniformity
• Vitreous vs. non-vitreous kernels, vitreousness
Above we see durum wheat to the left and common wheat to the right. The top row shows the samples in normal color, and the bottom row shows the spectral fingerprint for durum calculated from the spectral image. There is a dramatic increase in contrast between the two grain types and spectral imaging provides a way to obtain significantly better detection of grain types and impurities.
