Abstract

The main objectives of the NEXIM project are to develop the novel X-ray grating interferometry technique (Weitkamp et al. 2005; Pfeiffer et al. 2008) specifically towards food application and to identify the areas within the Danish food industry with the highest technological and commercial impact. The main focuses are determined to be threefold:

1)Improving the detectability of low density foreign bodies incidentally present in food products.
2)Development of new modalities for assessment of quality traits in food production, for instance connective tissue and fatty acid composition.
3)Develop a proof-of-principle of a conveyor belt solution that can form the basis for real product development.

In the past year the NEXIM project has focused on these three objectives, studying the applicability of GBI to meat quality assessment and foreign object detection. Some efforts have been put to developing laboratory-based setups further towards an in-line scanning system. Additionally, close co-operation with industrial partners has further emphasized the need for new techniques for quality control, product development and foreign object detection.
