3D X-ray Food Inspection of Bread and Bakery Products

Learn how Mito, the only In-line 3D X-ray Food Inspection System for Bread and Baked Products, meets the High-quality Standards of the Bakery Industry.

The inspection needs of the baking industry

Protecting the Brand Reputation and eliminating Waste

Many bakery manufacturers have adapted their products to consumer demand and launched healthier alternatives. However, it is also important that the products are safe and free of foreign bodies. Guaranteeing these safe high-quality products helps protect your consumers’ trust as well as your brand reputation. 

Implementing Mito, our 3D X-ray inspection solution, not only helps meet market demands regarding safety and quality, but it also optimizes the production process. This leads to increased efficiency, reduced waste and maximized output.

Food Quality Requirements for the Bakery Industry

Obtaining a product with the correct ratio of dough to air, a balanced distribution of ingredients, and correct packaging is just one of the challenges that food manufacturers face every day. It may be a croissant with missing or poorly distributed variegation or gluten-free bread with an unbalanced honeycomb structure.

The need to meet modern consumers’ expectations for food quality is high. It doesn’t take long to find yourself having to deal with a wave of unsatisfied customer complaints, losing consumers who were loyal to your brand until recently, and suffering losses due to ineffective production management.

Food safety requirements for the bakery industry

Foreign Bodies in Bakery Products

There are several ways a foreign body can end up in a baked good. Some of the most common include metal, plastic, glass, stone, nut, or wood fragments. In fact, in food production, the use of raw materials, maintenance procedures, process failures, and human error are often the cause of introducing physical contaminants into products.

As a result, the bakery industry is among the most susceptible to consumer complaints leading to financial losses due to product recalls, brand image damage, and cessation of purchase of brand products by mass retailers and consumers.

Biometic Mito




By integrating into your production line BIOMETiC’s Mito, the first and only X-ray inspection system with three-dimensional scanning technology and artificial intelligence, you are able to both identify foreign bodies in your products and determine their internal and external food quality. Mito performs so customizable internal and external inspections through non-destructive analysis.

Compared to a conventional 2D X-ray inspection device, Mito’s 3D X-ray scanning technology provides more accurate and stringent in-line food safety and quality controls with fewer errors and waste. Mito helps manufacturers in the baking industry by detecting, e.g., products with a damaged surface, oversized air pockets, and foreign bodies.
