“We are what we eat,” as the adage goes. But how often do we consider where our food comes from and whether it’s authentic or even safe? In this example, we discover how the Flame-NIR spectrometer measures reflectance to identify the variety and sweetness of apples. Typically, determining produce sweetness requires destructive testing. But as our video demonstrates, we can use NIR spectroscopy and multivariate analysis to predict sugar content rapidly and nondestructively.
