Temperature monitoring and remaining shelf lifes calculations by using TTIs
This software tool demonstrates how TTIs somethink about TTIs... can be used to control the cold chain and to predict the remaining shelf life of fresh poultry in diffferent steps of the chain. The prediction is based on the colour value of the TTI. The colour value is measured by a spectrophotometerThe discoloration process of TTIs is described by the square value SV of the CIE Lab colour system (L: lightness; a: red and green; b: yellow and blue). A high SV value corresponds to a high discoloration of the TTIs. .
Instruction: You enter a TTI-value measured by the spectrophotometer and a certain constant storage temperature. The program will calculate the remaining shelf life and determines whether the cold chain was satisfied or not. Extendet Modus: Further, on you can enter a dynamic temperature profile for the future to calculate the residual shelf life
