Paper Abstract

High moisture extrusion technology is capable of producing meat analogs which assemble real meat. Since visual and textural properties are the key factor for consumer acceptance, assessing fiber formation in extruded products is important for producing quality meat analogs with a great texture. Recently, we developed a photon migration method to assess fiber formation in meat analogs. In this paper, we present an implementation of this method in a real time scanning system. Acquired images were processed to characterize the fiber formation. This system provides a fast, non destructive means to determine the fiber formation in meat analogs.
