The F-750 Food Scanner for fruit quality measurement analyses the product quality of plant foods through near-infrared spectral analysis (NIRS) in a quick and non-destructive way.
This measuring method is already used in many industrial applications for material testing and is also suitable for swift deployment of the various stages of the plant value chain. In many experiments, e.g. for tomatoes, grapes, mangoes and blueberries, a very good correlation has been stated between e.g. the Brix value (sugar content) and the NIRS value.
The correlation to other quality parameters required for predictive models, for example, like dry matter content, acidity or hardness, must be determined by tests.
