Food & Beverages

Color is an essential sensory property. It is a critical component in the ultimate decision-making process when purchasing food.

Processed foods such as cereals, bread, pasta, and baby and pet food require good processing conditions to generate a product with consistent color. A change in color in the final product (aka color variance) results from poor processing conditions (changes in heat, cooling, mixing, etc.).

The EquiSpec IPS can monitor the quality of the food or beverage product in real-time and help determine issues that may arise with the food processing equipment, such as screw elements wear and tear, feeder fluctuations, lack of homogenization, etc.
