Quality Control for Spices, Seasonings, and Flavorings
Spices, seasonings, and flavorings are ingredients that are added to foods to enhance their taste, aroma, and overall appeal. The quality of these ingredients is important to ensure that they meet the desired sensory and functional properties. This requires careful quality measures that begin with the monitoring of the quality of incoming ingredients – herbs, seeds, extracts, and others – through the blending process, and onto packaging. Whether used at-line or integrated into a production process, KPM Analytics offers suppliers and food manufacturers the ability to control quality everywhere it matters.
Moisture and Compositional Analysis
Near-infrared (NIR) analysis technologies from KPM are commonly used to analyze the chemical composition of raw ingredients that are used to make the spice, seasoning, or flavoring blend. This can help ensure the ingredients meet desired quality parameters and standards to produce a consistent final product.
