This short paper describes how the use of multispectral imaging for color measurement can be utilized in an efficient and descriptive way for meat scientists. The basis of the study is meat color measurements performed with a multispectral imaging system as well as with a standard colorimeter. It is described how different color spaces can enhance the purpose of the analysis - whether that is investigation of a single sample or a comparison between samples. Moreover the study describes how a simple segmentation can be applied to the multispectral images in order to reach a more descriptive measure of color and color variance than what is obtained by the standard colorimeter.
