Why FlowCam for Food Particle Analysis?

Taste and texture can't be directly measured, so you need to rely on “tasting panels” in order to gather information on prospective products. This is both time consuming and expensive.

Particle size, and more importantly particle shape, correlate directly to the taste and mouth-feel of food products. FlowCam can help you determine the optimum size and shape of the particles in your product, and then enable you to quickly analyze batches to ensure they meet the standard.

Imaging Particle Analysis Optimizes Processes in the Food Industry

Particles come in many shapes and sizes.  Analyzing particles in food ingredients and correctly characterizing them is important because they can greatly affect the taste, appearance, stability, and processability of the final product.  CP Kelco, a leading producer of specialty hydrocolloids, manufactures a variety of texturizing and stabilizing ingredients for food processors.  Dynamic imaging particle analysis allows them to quickly and easily detect particle variations and ensure top quality products.
