How to perform Quality Assessment of fresh fruit?

Bruises and other quality assessment parameters of fresh fruits may be detected with multispectral imaging. Color and maturity are other highly relevant parameters to assess storability, visual quality, and taste.

Spectral imaging with VideometerLab may be used to assess fruit quality using UV, visual light, NIR, and fluorescence.

Quality Assessment Parameters

Spectral imaging may be used for e.g. the following quality parameters:

  • Detection of bruises
  • Recognition of chilling and freezing injury
  • Detection of surface defects and pathogens
  • Ripening stage
  • Color and visual quality
  • Other chemical and physical properties derived from optical properties

Product Examples

The following are product examples where the VideometerLab can assess the quality:

  • Apples – example apple bruises
  • Pears
  • Citrus fruits
  • Peaces
  • Mangos
  • Grapes
  • Strawberries
  • Mushrooms
  • Cucumber
  • Tomatos
