Near infrared hyperspectral imaging as detection method for pre-germination in whole wheat, barley and sorghum grains
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2011-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The use of near infrared (NIR) hyperspectral imaging for distinguishing between pre-germinated and non pre-germinated barley, wheat and sorghum kernels and, the effect of kernel shape on hyperspectral ...
Near infrared hyperspectral imaging and chemometrics for exploration and classification of whole wheat kernels
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Near infrared (NIR) hyperspectral imaging together with multivariate image analysis was evaluated as a non-destructive method to distinguish between whole wheat kernels differing in hardness; and also to ...
Near infrared (NIR) hyperspectral imaging for evaluation of whole maize kernels: chemometrics for exploration and classification
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-03)
The use of near infrared (NIR) hyperspectral imaging and hyperspectral image analysis for distinguishing between whole maize kernels of varying degrees of hardness and fungal infected and non-infected kernels have been ...
HPLC method development for characterisation of the phenolic composition of Cyclopia subternata and C. maculata extracts and chromatographic fingerprint analysis for quality control
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The phenolic composition of Cyclopia species is believed to be partially responsible for the numerous health promoting properties associated with their extracts. Current quality control measures do not ...
Characterisation of whole white maize kernels using spectral imaging
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2017-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Maize (Zea mays L.) is the most important cereal crop grown in South Africa. It is produced widely across the country under diverse environments, and thus a variety of defects tend to occur. Grading is ...
Rapid differentiation of South African game meat using portable near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2019-04)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The South African game meat industry operates as a free-market enterprise; however, this can create certain problems for producers and consumers. For example, in South Africa no standardised meat cuts ...
