Adopting the color management techniques throughout the yogurt production process will definitely help the manufacturers in enhancing the color quality and yield of yogurt. Before blending the ingredients together, it is necessary to ascertain the L*a*b* values of the ingredients so that the variance in the colors of the yogurt can be minimized to a great extent. Evaluating the accurate color of yogurt, manufacturers need to determine whether the corrective action is required before packaging or not. To ascertain the transparency or opaqueness of the ingredients, it is mandatory to choose best and appropriate mode of measurement to gauge the transmittance curve or reflectance curve of a particular color.
