Detecting Bone Fragments in Pork Meat
Food Safety & Spectral Imaging
Science and technology are constantly evolving to serve customers, by for example ensuring their food is not contaminated or adulterated. Unfortunately, in recent years, it is becoming a wider problem, where food producers try to cut their production costs by decreasing quality control efforts.
Videometer’s technology is designated to detect various internal and external food features. Furthermore, Spectral imaging allows fast, non-destructive, and precise analysis.
How to detect bone fragments in meat?
Paper in Infrared Physics & Technology documents Videometer’s technology in Food application. Read more about how the VideometerLab imaging in combination with chemometrics can be used for detecting bone fragments in lean pork.
The study concluded:
Results of satisfactory identification and visualization of bone fragments indicated that multispectral imaging could serve as an online approach for potential industrial applications.Wang, W., Zhang, H., Yan, L., Zhou, H., Chen, C., Xu, B., Zheng, L., & Ma, F.
