Analysis of the Milling Sector

The Service in detail

NIR (Near-Infrared Reflectance) analyzes play a fundamental role in the milling sector, allowing the quality of cereals and their processed products, such as flour, to be assessed and monitored.

Among the NIR analyzes applied to the milling sector we find:

  1. Evaluation of the Chemical Composition of Cereals: NIR analyzes allow you to precisely determine the chemical composition of cereals, including levels of protein, fat, starch, fiber and moisture. This information is fundamental for selecting high quality cereals and optimizing transformation processes.
  2. Cereal Quality Control: NIR analyzes can be used to evaluate the quality of cereals in terms of specific weight, grain size, presence of impurities and contaminants. This information helps ensure that the grains meet the required quality standards and are suitable for milling.
  3. Optimization of the Milling Process: Using NIR analyzes to monitor the milling process, it is possible to optimize the grain size of the flour and adjust the production parameters to maximize the yield and quality of the flour produced.
  4. Flour Quality Control: NIR analyzes allow you to evaluate the quality of the flour in terms of protein content, gluten strength, water absorption and colour. This information is crucial to ensuring that the flour meets the required quality standards and is suitable for the production of a wide range of baked goods.
  5. Analysis of the Quality of Bread and Baked Products: Using NIR analyzes to evaluate the quality of flour and its processed products, it is possible to optimize the recipes and production processes of baked products, ensuring maximum quality and consistency in the final product.
