Interpretive Summary: With increasing consumer expectations of high-quality and safe agro-food products, the demands for the accurate, fast, and objective quality and safety assessments are growing in both industry and markets. In order to meet the consumer and industry needs, the research at the Non-destructive Detecting Laboratory for Agricultural and Food Products in the China Agricultural University is to evaluate and develop non-destructive and rapid detection techniques and instruments/systems for assessments of agro-food quality and safety. In this report, some of our latest developments and findings through multidisciplinary international collaborations are summarized.

Technical Abstract: Near infrared spectroscopy and hyperspectral imaging are fast-growing, rapid, powerful, and non-destructive optical technologies that can be used especially in quality and safety control of agro-food products. The Non-destructive Detecting Laboratory for Agricultural and Food Products in the College of Engineering, China Agricultural University in Beijing, China, has engaged in research on sensing and characterizing agro-food quality and safety attributes with the latest optical methods including near infrared spectroscopy and hyperspectral imaging for over five years. In this report, some of our latest research and developments through multidisciplinary international collaborations will be highlighted to demonstrate our contributions to this near infrared spectroscopy and hyperspectral imaging sensing area to improve non-destructive diagnosis and quality control of agricultural and food products.
