Food Technology

In order to contribute towards securing sustainable food production, SINTEF ICT has focused on developing instrumentation technologies aimed at obtaining real-time data on foodstuff quality throughout the entire value chain. In this field we work closely with food research institutes, food technology providers and the food industry, and we have expertise in imaging, spectroscopy, acoustics, micro-sensors, X-ray instrumentation, robotics, process control and communications instrumentation. SINTEF ICT has a proven track record in the development of industrial instrumentation systems in the field of food technology, including the following;
  • Non-contact measurement of the protein, fat and water content of meat, fish and other food products
  • Measurement of ice fraction in super-chilled salmon
  • Objective measurement of colour in salmon
  • Visual inspection of split cod/bacalao
  • Pinbone detection and removal in pre-rigor salmon and cod
  • Foreign object detection
  • High capacity fish counting and weight estimation
  • Measurement of tenderness and drip loss in meat
