Raman spectroscopy for quality differentiation of pork

Raman spectroscopy can be used for analysis of important quality indicators in meat, feasibly leading to on-line applications of the technique in the future.   Overall meat eating quality is very important for consumer confidence, willingness to pay

5 points to consider before setting sails in data science projects in the food industry

In the slipstream of the digitalization of modern food industry, part of Industry 4.0, a paramount need to handle larger and larger amounts of data has called for new developments in both the analytical toolbox

Tracking non-rigid objects using depth camera

Surface of non-rigid objects, such as leafy vegetables, meats and fishes can be completely and accurately tracked using a depth camera with the approach proposed in this article. This is exceptionally useful while interacting with

Raman spectroscopy for estimation of residual bone minerals in mechanically deboned chicken meat

Residual bone, measured as %calcium or %ash, is a strictly controlled quality parameter of mechanically deboned chicken meat (MDCM). Raman spectroscopy was developed as a rapid tool for estimation of this important parameter.  Mechanical deboning

Porosity maps give an ‘airy’ image of fruit and vegetables

See the internal structure of your product through 3D X-ray based porosity mapping.   The porosity of a fruit or vegetable quantifies the amount of air spaces inside the product. The porosity strongly determines to what

Managing supply uncertainty in operational production planning – A whitefish case study

Managing supply uncertainty by a formal stochastic programming approach demonstrates how expected profit may be increased due to more robust production plans.   Production planning Operational production planning deals with establishing optimal production plans. A production

Intermediary Real-Time Trajectory Interpolating with Cubic Hermite Splines

Real-time trajectory interpolation allows a Python-based sensor-integrating application to real-time control a Franka Emika robot. Application development in Python is much faster and easier than in C++.   When robot motion generation for a processing task is dependent on real-time sensor feed-back from the processing tool, the motion must be, by it’s nature, generated at the temporal micro to meso level in

Designing within the circular economy

How can the food industry and their equipment vendors use design as a tool to enter the circular economy?  Circular design is a tool used in the circular economy. The future must become more sustainable

About us 

iProcess’s main objective is to develop novel concepts and methods for flexible and sustainable food processing in Norway – that are to cope with small volume series and high biologicalvariation of the existing raw materials – to enable increased raw material utilization for food
products and to increase profitability.
