As a matter of fact, the livestock sector contributes more than 25% of total agricultural GVA and 4.5% of total GVA. Among the various livestock products, milk has always held a higher rank than the other products viz. meat, eggs, wool, hide, etc. Since times immemorial milk is considered an essential component of the human diet providing various nutrients owing to its high nutritive value and also offers a wide range of health benefits.

Application of near infrared (NIR) for analysis of food products

Introduction The near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR) is part of the electromagnetic spectrum with a wavelength range of 780 nm to 2500 nm. It propagates in simple harmonic motion specifically based on the chemical bonds and molecules present in the product. The frequency of vibrations appears in the NIR of the spectrum. They are specifically associated with overtones and fundamental vibrations. NIR spectroscopy is used for both qualitative and quantitative analysis of agriculture and food products. It requires minimal sample preparation and is non-destructive. Nir spectrometer is classified as a sequential instrument that is equipped with a monochromator or filter that collects the absorbance of samples sequentially, Fourier transforms, or multiplex instrument where the frequency is determined using interferogram and multichannel instruments where the absorbance of wavelengths are detected.
