Effect (LED) verlichting op smaak van verpakte melk

16 februari 2018

Light exposure can damage the sensory properties of milk, leading to adverse consumer responses. Light-emitting diode (LED) lighting is assumed to be less damaging to milk. Researchers at Cornell University US exposed fat-free milk to LED and fluorescent light.
Consumers reported higher liking for fluorescent-exposed samples versus those exposed to LED. Light-protective packaging offered near-complete protection from LED exposure, with a similar flavor profile as unexposed milk, and the best liking scores of any treatment. Nevertheless, consumers disliked its appearance due to unfamiliarity. An article about the research is published in the Journal of Dairy Science.
