Reduce Time And Cost: Multiparameter Measurements For Food Flavor And Fragrance

Source: Anton Paar USA

In the production of flavors and fragrances for food, the measurement of density and refractive index plays a key role for many processes. Now, the number of additional food quality characteristics is increasing and often includes parameters such as optical rotation, color, or pH. This leads to considerable additional work and expenses, especially when these parameters are measured with stand-alone instruments.

One measuring system, many parameters

As an alternative to using a number of single instruments, Anton Paar provides a complete system for multiparameter measurements called Modulyzer. The core is the DMA Generation M which can be combined with:

  • a high precision refractometer Abbemat
  • a MCP series polarimeter
  • a color measuring instrument
  • a pH module
