Nondestructive Measurement in Food and Agro-products
Xiaobo Zou • Jiewen Zhao
The quality and safety of food and agro-products is a growing concern in global trade. In recent years, nondestructive measurement (NDM) methods of quality and safety evaluation have gained momentum and considerable attempts have been made to develop them for objective, consistent, and accurate testing. Although well developed in developed countries, this technology has only recently begun to gener-ate interest in China and is developing slowly. Much research is now being directed toward the development of nondestructive measurement devices that are versatile, economical, and simple to use. Emphasis has been placed on the new and emerging methods and applications.
