Olives and the products made from them are valuable and highly- priced agricultural products, so quality control of olives and monitoring of process conditions in the production of olive oil are crucial criteria for the quality of the food produced.
Polytec’s near-infrared (NIR) spectrometers enable olive oil producers to monitor processes at every stage of oil production and adjust them quickly and cost-effectively. The analysis of a large number of samples in real- time helps to keep the quality of the products constant and avoid quality losses.
With just one measurement, different parameters, such as the fat and moisture content of the olives, can be measured. In addition, the acidity of the delivered olives can also be determined, as acidity is a crucial criterion for good production practices during the harvesting and storage of the olives.
For more information on the analysis of olive oil with NIR spectroscopy, see our application note.
