Rapid detection of frozen-then-thawed minced beef using multispectral imaging and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy

In recent years, fraud detection has become a major priority for food authorities, as fraudulent practices can have various economic and safety consequences. This work explores ways of identifying frozen-then-thawed minced beef labeled as fresh in a rapid, large-scale and cost-effective way. For this reason, freshly-ground beef was purchased from seven separate shops at different times, divided in fifteen portions and placed in Petri dishes. Multi-spectral images and FTIR spectra of the first five were immediately acquired while the remaining were frozen (−20°C) and stored for 7 and 32days (5 samples for each time interval). Samples were thawed and subsequently subjected to similar data acquisition. In total, 105 multispectral images and FTIR spectra were collected which were further analyzed using partial least-squares discriminant analysis and support vector machines. Two meat batches (30 samples) were reserved for independent validation and the remaining five batches were divided in training and test set (75 samples). Results showed 100% overall correct classification for test and external validation MSI data, while FTIR data yielded 93.3 and 96.7% overall correct classification for FTIR test set and external validation set respectively.
