Vibrational spectroscopy for food quality and safety screening

A. P. Craig, A. S. Franca, J. Irudayaraj

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Vibrational spectroscopy, both infrared absorption and Raman scattering, has gained importance in the evaluation of food quality and safety standards because of its appeal in rapid, reliable, and nondestructive analysis, in most cases requiring minimum sample pretreatment. These features enable vibrational spectroscopy to be easily implemented in routine analysis in off-line and online modes in food processing facilities. This book chapter first discusses some fundamentals on vibrational spectroscopy and the recent advances that have led to many novel applications. A review of the application of these techniques for food quality and safety screening is presented.
