Non-destructive nir technology for fruit and vegetable internal quality assessment, eliminating the skin disturbing effect

Objective

The consumer is most of all interested to know the fruit flesh quail- tee regardless of the good-looking appearance of the product offered. Up to now there has not been a consistent approach which theoretically or in practice could lead to a solution of internal quality assessment problem. The Project gives a solution particularly applicable to pot-toes, apples and peaches. The overall objective is to demonstrate anew NIR method for virtual (optical and mathematical) stripping of the skin and a photometric camera for implementation of the method. The camera allows to measure the fruit flesh spectrum without the object physical peeling, hence to predict precisely the internal quality: inside diseases and defects, degree of maturity, flavour etc.
