Color measurement of spreads

Jams, jellies, honey, nut creams and other (sweet) spreads are among the processed fruit/nut products whose production time can be accompanied by color changes. From the harvest to the end product, quality controls are necessary at many points in order to guarantee a consistent appearance.

In their appearance, mostly opaque, often translucent, spreads and jams are measured in reflection using various devices and accessories.

Application example:

Measuring the color of jam

Jam, marmalade or jelly are viscous or semi-solid samples that can be easily measured in a cuvette. If the product is translucent, the “Ring and Disc Set” is also used. The black ring is placed in the cuvette to ensure the same film thickness for all measurements. The white stamp (disc) excludes ambient light and at the same time provides a standardized background. For opaque samples such as creams, peanut butter, etc., the sample is spread into the cuvette. If there is no need to clean the glass cuvette for time reasons, HunterLab also offers plastic cuvettes that can be disposed of after the measurement. Filling a glass cuvette for color measurement The measurement is very...

Color measurement of contact lenses

Color measurement of contact lenses

Color measurement is essential in the development of contact lenses in order to optimize both coloration and light transmission. 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...
