NIR reflectance spectroscopy provides a reliable method for measuring food quality. Monitoring parameters such as moisture, protein and fat content is a critical part of managing quality throughout the supply chain. In this application note, we examine the impact of dynamic sampling on improving the repeatability of NIR reflectance measurements of corn kernels without increasing the total time or frequency of measurements.
