Paper Abstract

Total volatile basic nitrogen (TVB-N) content is one of the important factors to measure the quality of meat. However, conventional chemical analysis methods for measuring TVB-N contents are time-consuming and labor-intensive, and are destructive procedures. The objective of this study is to investigate the possibility of fluorescence hyperspectral imaging techniques for determination of total volatile basic nitrogen (TVB-N) in beef meat. High intensity LED lights at 365 nm and 405 nm were used as the excitation for acquiring fluorescence images. Prediction algorithms based on simple band-ratio, partial least square discriminant analysis (PLS-DA) have been developed. This study shows that fluorescence hyperspectral imaging system has a good potential for rapid measurement of TVB-N content in meat.
