    From the perspective of ‘measuring is knowing’, the integration of smart sensor technology applications in food production has been identified in a recent report by the European Parliament as an important opportunity for the food processing industry to achieve sustainable production without affecting quality. Since the Flemish food industry is respected worldwide for its high quality products and wants to maintain this position, the sector is teaming up with research institutes within the framework of the Sensors For Food (SFF) project…
  • Using Vis/NIR spectroscopy to evaluate quality craft beer during fermentation

    A quality beer is produced using malt, hops, water and yeast, which are dosed during an extended production process. Craft beer is a non-filtered and unpasteurised product that maintains unaltered sensorial characteristics. When compared to industrial beers, craft beer is more vulnerable to microbial contamination that may cause spoilage (turbidity, acidification and the production of undesired aromatic compounds). In particular, fermentation is one of the most delicate phases of the production process and must be subject to accurate quality control…
