Sauces and Dressings are typically opaque liquids in form, and their colors are designed to entice consumers to choose one brand over another. It is well-known that the perception of food flavor is closely tied to its color, proven time and again through the science of sensory analysis.
The proper measurement technique is to employ a Directional 45°/0° Reflectance instrument. This is the geometry that most closely matches how the human eye sees color and how a consumer will view the product when making a selection.
Many of HunterLab's spectrophotometers are versatile enough to accommodate most applications of color measurement. However, based on 60+ years of experience and a thorough understanding of our customers? needs and product use, these particular instruments are most suited for this industries application.
If you are unsure which instrument type is right for your samples, please call or email HunterLab technical support and we will be happy to assist you in making the proper instrument selection.
