The woody breast inline grader system uses a multitude of light spectrum to classify the chemical composition of each chicken fillet, which then assigns a grade from 0 to 3 (being the most severe) based on U.S. poultry industry standards, says Thorsten Niermeyer, business unit manager at Tomra Sorting, at the 2017 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE).
