Application Note: Quality control of palm oil using NIR spectroscopy
8 April 2020

In this application note, Metrohm demonstrates the environmentally friendly determination of FFA content, iodine value, moisture, DOBI, and carotene content. The XDS RapidLiquid Analyzer, operating in the visible and near infrared spectral region (Vis-NIR), promises a cost-efficient and fast solution for the determination of these quality control parameters in palm oil. This application note highlights NIR spectroscopy as a method for the rapid analysis of palm oil without the need for sample preparation or chemical reagents.
