Abstract

Broadband acoustic resonance dissolution spectroscopy (BARDS) is a novel method that can be used for the analysis of food-based powders, which are mainly characterized by their composition and particle morphology. This study aimed to evaluate BARDS for the compositional analysis of food powders. The changes in the BARDS spectra due to the changes in composition and particle morphology of fifteen salt mixtures (constituting of NaCl, KCl, and MgCl2) in five particle size ranges were comprehensively studied. Moreover, different regression methods were utilized to estimate each mixture component content. The results revealed that the average time–frequency spectra of each mixture in a certain particle size class were highly distinct and allowed discrimination from others. The unique spectra of each salt mixture originated from the specific dissolution rate and degassing effect of each constitutive compound. Finally, the accurate prediction of each mixture component content confirmed the consistency and efficiency of the method.
