Meat analysis

Friday, 22 April, 2005 | Supplied by:

The Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) has approved both the Foss MeatMaster and Foss FoodScan for the determination of percentage Chemical Lean (fat content) in export beef trimmings, under the Export Meat Orders Schedule 2 - Part 2 (1.3).

Processors can now use the information provided by these Foss Chemical Lean (CL) analysers and not be concerned with the necessary double-checking required when using a non-AQIS-approved analyser or method.

Foss MeatMaster is an x-ray-based, inline conveyor belt system for meat analysis. Apart from CL, MeatMaster will also determine the sample weight and detect foreign objects in a one tonne batch or a single box. MeatMaster's dual x-ray configuration can be used to analyse fresh, frozen and chilled product with one calibration. Calibration and validation can be achieved within two weeks of install. MeatMaster is robust and purpose built for analysis of boxed, loose or frozen meat. Foss FoodScan is a simple laboratory or at-line solution for meat analysis, including raw meat, cooked meat and final product. FoodScan provides fast and accurate analysis of key parameters including fat, moisture, protein, collagen and salt in less than a minute. FoodScan is delivered pre-calibrated with an ANN calibration that ensures low cost of calibration development and maintenance. Sample analysis with FoodScan is quick and easy: simply place the sample in the sample cup, place the cup in the sample cup holder, and close the door. Within 50 s, the result for fat, moisture and protein is displayed.
