Color measurement of yoghurt with the ColorFlex EZ

Color-measurement-of-yogurtColor is an important quality parameter for paste-like dairy products such as yoghurt, quark, cream cheese, spreadable fats, crème fraîche, sour cream and ice cream. Whether as a natural variant or with the addition of fruit products – the color palette is an important part of the development process. In production, the color measurement is then used for quality control. HunterLab offers the right color measurement solution to meet the quality standards according to visual perception.

The task

The milk products described above are pasty substances and must be filled into a suitable container for color measurement.

The solution

HunterLab recommends the ColorFlex EZ spectrophotometer and the use of a special 64 mm optical glass cuvette for measuring the color of pasty dairy products. By measuring the sample from below through the bottom of the glass, you have a perfectly flat measuring surface. The cuvette aperture of the ColorFlex EZ also ensures that the cuvette is always positioned centrally above the aperture. When sufficiently filled, these products are opaque and therefore independent of ambient light.

The measurement is very simple:

  • Replace the standard aperture once with a cuvette aperture and standardize the device with it
  • Fill the product into the cuvette
  • Place the cuvette on the aperture
  • Trigger measurement at the touch of a button
  • Read off values

Clear lenses are lightly tinted to facilitate handling without impairing the visual experience. 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...
