IFT14: Moisture Meters, Composition Analyzers & Ice Cream Bars Oh My!

Posted by John Bogart on Thu, Jul 3, 2014

ift2014 expo While IFT14 represents a great opportunity for us to showcase how Kett test and measurement equipment can enhance food quality, extend shelf life and improve profits at the largest annual food science forum and expo in the world – for me a highlight of the show is always the delicious food. 

Combining 16,000 industry professionals in New Orleans can only be described as a culinary delight. With a focus on "natural" and "healthy" foods as well as flavours and additives there were copious tasty samples. A personal thank you to Blommers for the dark chocolate ice cream bars.  I make it a point to sample them each year and they never disappoint.

And a big thank you to IFT for once again organizing a spectacular event. See the highlight video here: http://www.am-fe.ift.org/cms/ 

During the previous year, we have been busy improving Kett's test instruments so I was excited to showcase some of newest additions to the Kett range. 

Single Grain Moisture Tester

Portable Flour Moisture Meter

Moisture Balance

NIR Composition Analyzer

Grain and Seed Moisture Meter

After attending IFT for 17 years, it  amazes me how many people still haven’t seen our KJT130 handheld NIR moisture meter and are wow’d when they see our live demonstration for the first time.

And it just wouldn’t be a Kett exhibit without the world’s  favourite moisture meter the Riceter.

I value the opportunity to connect with so many like-minded food science professionals and I look forward to Kett’s 18th appearance (along with another Blommers dark chocolate ice cream bar of course) at the IFT expo next year.
