Abstract

White pepper is a high-value commodity that is a target for adulteration, leading to loss of quality and encroachment on the rights and interests of consumers. Therefore, it is imperative to develop fast and reliable methods for detecting white pepper powder adulteration. The present paper investigated the feasibility of using near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy for quantifying adulteration (including whole wheat flour and corn flour) in white pepper powder. Partial least squares (PLS) calibration models were developed. Results showed that the standard error of calibration (SEC) and prediction (SEP) were 0.788% and 0.920%, respectively.
