Application for NIR Analysis of Beverages

WithLana R. Kington, Tom M. Jones

Important applications of near-infrared analysis (NIRA) are found in the beverage and nutritional formula industries. Technologies have been described for near-infrared (NIR) determinations of constituents in alcoholic beverages such as beer, wines, and distilled spirits; nonalcoholic beverages such as fruit juices, coffees, teas, and soft drinks; and other products such as infant and adult nutritional formulas. Some of these applications are described in this chapter.
