At-line measurement of degree-of-bake or brownness

30 October 2017

The InfraLab e-Series at-line analysers, from NDC Technologies, offer accurate measurement of degree-of-bake (DOB) or brownness in biscuits, crackers, cookies and snack foods. 

Testing of product during the manufacturing, for moisture and colour, is important to ensure final product consistency. However, testing typically requires the use of multiple analytical technologies which more usually located remotely from the production line. 

NDC Technologies has integrated its DOB or brownness measurements into the InfraLab at-line analyser to provide simultaneous measurements of moisture, oil and DOB within five seconds. No special skills are required to operate the unit.

The unit is said to deliver process vision far beyond that of conventional testing as it can provide feedback to the process controller for improved control of moisture, oil and DOB.
