Ingredient Color Measurement

Ingredients play a key role in the development of food, with unique flavors and textures and as importantly, influencing the color of the final food product. Major brands around the world understand the importance of ensuring appealing food color as this closely relates to a consumers perception of flavor. That is why companies like McCormick, Smuckers, ConAgra Foods and other major world-wide brands rely HunterLab’s 60 + years of experience and knowledge in providing solutions to ensure color consistency of their food ingredients throughout their supply chain.

Food ingredients are quite diverse and vary from herbs, spices, and seasonings to confectionary, food colorings, starches, and even antioxidants. They can be solid, liquid, powder, and even paste in form so require different measurement techniques and instrumentation for successful color measurement. Noodles are a staple in many dishes and are made from stretched and rolled dough.
