METTLER TOLEDO offers many different solutions to the snack foods industry, specifically for companies specializing in quality control in salt content, moisture and particle size distribution. The broad laboratory product line consists of titration, moisture analysis, laboratory weighing, pH/Ion meters and other weighing and instrument solutions specific to this industry.
Innovations in Titration
The government and media have placed pressure on manufacturers to reduce salt levels, monitor salt levels accurately and report salt levels on packages. METTLER TOLEDO offers the DL22 Food and Beverage Analyzer, which is an easy solution to determine salt content, total acidity, free fatty acid and Vitamin C that are crucial for the right taste and success of food products. It allows easy set up and use with little method development or training. The DL22 Food and Beverage Analyzer reduces response time, improves process control and supports all Quality Management requirements. For a higher degree of automation, the Rondolino auto-sampler runs up to 9 samples unattended on more complex analyses of edible oils, preservatives and other raw materials.
Monitoring Moisture Content
Moisture determination is critical for shelf-life and mouth feel of snack foods. The HR83 Halogen Moisture Analyzer offers gentle and multi-step drying programs and over 40 different methods can be stored fast analysis and reproducible results. This instrument automatically calculates moisture content, sends results to a built-in printer or saves results to a PC with the new LabX Direct Moisture software.
Smart Ideas in Weighing
