Today even the most accomplished dairy producers face the challenge of getting more and more out of their raw materials while still improving their product quality. That is a tall order in an industry built on highly variable raw materials and quickly changing markets.
But where nature is unpredictable, data harvests never fail.
It’s a common goal for butter production: get the highest possible moisture concentration with the lowest possible fat content. In this way, you can safely improve yield and profit while always meeting quality and legislative requirements. In effect, you can get more from your production without putting more in. Now, FOSS makes it simpler than ever to achieve this goal.
Near infrared (NIR) analysis is a powerful tool for producing butter closer to target specifications. For instance, the easy-to-use FoodScan™ 2 dairy analyser offers multi-parameter tests taking less than a minute. This allows regular tests to keep track of production.
Even closer control of the process can be achieved with the ProFoss™ 2 in-line NIR analysis solution. By measuring directly in the process every few seconds, process variation of key parameters such as fat, moisture and solids non-fat can be constantly monitored against targets allowing adjustments to be made accordingly for higher yield.
