Many salt producing facilities have now switched to dynamic image analysis (the CAMSIZER), which is quicker, more efficient, and provides additional information about the shape of the salt crystals. This application note describes how the CAMSIZER has been successfully used to characterize salt size and shape.
Time‐resolved Fluorescence for Monitoring Food Composition
The use of time‐resolved fluorescence has expanded as the relative cost of instrumentation has decreased in recent years. One area where this is especially true is in the food industry, where time‐resolved fluorescence has been applied in the characterization of food stuffs as well as aspects related to food safety and degradation.
Particle size of cocoa powder used in chocolate affects color and flavor strength. The industry refers to “mouthfeel” as a gauge of acceptability or rejection. If the particles are too large, it will not have a consistent creamy taste. Particle size also affects the level of bitterness when tasted.
