A Review of the Principles and Applications of Near-Infrared Spectroscopy to Characterize Meat, Fat, and Meat Products

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Consumer demand for quality and healthfulness has led to a higher need for quality assurance in meat production. This requirement has increased interest in near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy due to the ability for rapid, environmentally friendly, and noninvasive prediction of meat quality or authentication of added-value meat products. This review includes the principles of NIR spectroscopy, pre-processing methods, and multivariate analyses used for quantitative and qualitative purposes in the meat sector. Recent advances in portable NIR spectrometers that enable new online applications in the meat industry are shown and their performance evaluated. Discrepancies between published studies and potential sources of variability are discussed, and further research is encouraged to face the challenges of using NIRS technology in commercial applications, so that its full potential can be achieved.
