The color of food has a significant influence on the identification of flavor and consumer preference. Achieving accurate and consistent color is important but challenging, especially for food such as canned soup, which require precise proportion of ingredients to produce the right color.

Color measurement done visually is highly subjected as color is perceived differently by different observer. Color measuring instrument express color numerically which allows user to quantify color objectively.

The color of ingredients influences the overall color of soup, therefore, verifying their color help minimize wide variance and improve production yield. Ingredients comes in various forms like opaque, translucent or transparent. To ensure color data acquired are accurate, the use of either transmittance or reflectance measurement mode is selected in accordance with the ingredients opaqueness or transparency.
