All about meat analysis – get the full picture at IPPE, Atlanta, 28 – 30th January
New analytical solutions are offering increasingly easy and powerful ways to boost meat production. Visit FOSS at IPPE stand 4471, Hall A1 to get a complete picture of available options, from simple fat tests at the production line to in-line analysis of entire batches.
In-line fat analysis leads to greater profit
Visitors to the FOSS booth can learn all about the MeatMaster™ II, a second-generation X-ray analyser that makes it easier than ever for meat producers to measure the fat content of entire batches of meat and at the same time check for foreign objects.
The new MeatMaster comes after 10 years of supplying X-ray analysis to the meat industry with over 140 installations of the first generation MeatMaster at major meat producers around the world. Typical payback time has been found to be less than a year and case studies show savings of at least around €2500 per day. The savings are made through the more rational use of raw materials with the continuous X-ray test results helping producers to get exactly the right fat/lean mix in their products. This leads both to improved yield and more consistent quality.
NIR analysis of meat in a pipe or on a conveyor
Another in-line solution, the ProFoss™ process analysis solution is relevant for those looking for accurate monitoring and control of the poultry MDM-production process with continuous measurements of meat in a pipe. Advantages include improved yield and profit, achieved through improved fat-content control during the production of the MDM product and more consistent product quality.
Another use of the ProFoss is for fat analysis of ground meat for sausage production, as explained in this video.

AOAC approved NIR tests
The AOAC approved FoodScan™ meat analyser for multiple quality parameters of meat and the MeatScan™ for simple and rapid testing of fat and moisture can also been studied at the FOSS booth. Both instruments can be used close to the production line.
