As a vegetable alternative to butter, margarine is becoming increasingly popular, not only among vegetarians. In addition, margarine is generally considered healthier and more environmentally friendly, as its production from edible oils leaves a significantly smaller environmental footprint than conventional butter production.

Polytec inline spectrometers provide producers with solutions to increase efficiency, improve accuracy and enhance product quality. With real-time analysis directly on the production floor, Polytec offers system solutions for margarine producers. Polytec’s advanced spectroscopy solution can replace a wide range of traditional test methods for margarine quality assessment, without the need for sampling, waiting time from laboratory analysis, or the use of chemicals for sample preparation.

With only one measurement, different parameters, such as water content and fat content, but also dry matter and salt content, can be tested. As a substitute to wet chemical or physical NMR technology, prediction of solid fats (Solid-Fat-Content SFC) becomes possible as a fast and efficient screening method.
