Color measurement of liquid dairy products

Color-measurement-of-dairy-productsWhether cow’s milk or the increasingly popular types of milk made from nuts and cereals, a consistent color stands for quality and freshness.

The task

Liquid dairy products (milk, cream, etc.) must be filled into a suitable container for color measurement. However, a simple reflection measurement would be falsified for these translucent foods, as the ambient light and the fill level in the cuvette have an influence on the measured color.

The solution

HunterLab recommends color measurement in a special 64 mm glass cuvette, together with the ring and disc set on the ColorFlex EZ spectrophotometer. The ring ensures an identical coating thickness for all measurements, while the white stamp (disc) excludes ambient light and at the same time provides a standardized background.

  • Fill the product to just above the ring
  • Place the stamp and press down to the ring
  • Place the cuvette on the aperture
  • Trigger measurement at the touch of a button
  • Read off values

Using specific color measurements, the transmission of light through the lenses can be precisely analyzed and controlled depending on the material. For tinted lenses, the precise measurement makes it possible to change eye colors authentically. HunterLabs Vista spectrophotom...
