Guide Helps Ensure Non-Alcoholic Beverage Taste and Safety
Consumers have more non-alcoholic beverage choices than ever before, so keeping customers happy is important.
METTLER TOLEDO’s new Non-alcoholic Beverage Solution Guide suggests best practices for chemical analyses used in this ever-expanding beverage arena, helping producers meet quality goals while protecting their brand as well as manufacturing profit margins.
Today, the sheer number of specialized waters, juices and soft/functional drinks available worldwide is staggering. Quality and production control tests such as pH and conductivity, hardness, alkalinity, Brix, acidity, sodium and chloride content are paramount to the palatability, consistency and shelf-life of these alcohol-free products. A new, free METTLER TOLEDO guide showcases selected analyses applied to non-alcoholic beverages to help ensure consistent quality.
Many routine tests designed to ensure raw ingredient or final product quality are executed frequently. Accuracy when performing these analyses is absolutely non-negotiable to beverage producers. Shifts in composition can violate product declaration, causing loss of product. Shifts in taste, on the other hand, disappoint consumers—and once a consumer has had a bad experience, it may be difficult to get them back.
Examples in the guide range from correct pipetting to multiparameter systems covering analytical concerns that help maintain product reputation, taste, and safety. Automation is emphasized as a way to streamline testing while meeting stringent food and beverage regulatory requirements.
