Konica Minolta BC-10 Colorimeters

The BC-10 measures the color of baked, fried, and processed foods, as well as ingredients, in various environments to ensure consistency in appearance.

It is ideal for multi-plant, multi-lined companies, co-packers, and restaurant chains that seek enhanced consistency and quality of their products' appearance. Besides crust color, the BC-10 measures color in most bakery and snack food products, block yeast, brown sugar, calcium propionate, and flour blending. The baking meter is also used by academia for color recognition training, research and development, and international bakery assistance.
