Appetizing oils such as palm oil, coconut oil, mustard oil are graded as per their level of refinement. Grading of these oils is done on the basis of their colors. The visual assessment alone is hard to grade the edible oils consistently and reliably due to some various factors like sample size, lighting conditions, and eye fatigue that influence the color of the product and also influence of the human behavior that how they perceive the colors. To ensure that these appetizing oils are graded accurately, the colour measurement instrument is used.

Purpose of Using Colour Tester for Appetizing Oils

Oils are usually transparent or translucent in nature; hence, it can be measured easily using the transmittance mode of measurement. This mode of analysis help to provide the L*a*b* value that first define the actual color by choosing the best and desired color space and then provide the transmittance color measurement curve to the user. Making use of Colorimeters and spectrophotometers is the precise way to determine the colors of the edible oils and related products. Oils packed for the consumer for direct use are blended into best colors using the colour tester to ensure the color consistency throughout the production batch.  The best device for measuring the color of edible oils is TP 300 Portable Measuring device.
