Using the Science of Light to Create Perfectly Delicious Tomato Products - Spectrophotometry Leader, HunterLab, Launches Global Tomato Processing Campaign
RESTON, Va., April 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- HunterLab ushered in the spring season by announcing a new initiative focused on the importance of applying spectrophotometer technology to the tomato processing industry. Measuring the color of tomatoes is essential to guarantee ripeness, quality, safety, and suitability for a wide range of foods including ketchup, sauces, pastes, soups, and more. HunterLab specializes in food color measurement with spectrophotometers, significantly reducing time and money by making perfect color measurements otherwise impossible to achieve with the human eye alone.
"Our friends in the tomato industry rely on accurate measurements of lycopene, TPS, LAB, and other scales to indicate freshness and quality, in addition to making food look appetizing," said Bob Weaver, President and COO of HunterLab. "And empirically measuring tomato products, regardless of which scale is used, is critical for quality control and precision, helping ensure the consistency and brand recognition that customers have come to expect in food products like tomato paste and ketchup. This is why we are excited to offer two spectrophotometer models dedicated exactly for this purpose."
