Abstract This study concerns the development of a new system to detect Meat and Bone Meal (MBM) in compound feed, which will be used to enforce legislation concerning feedstuffs enacted after the European mad cow crisis. Focal plane array near infrared (NIR) imaging spectroscopy, which collects thousands of spatially-resolved spectra in a massively-parallel fashion, has been suggested as a more efficient alternative to the current methods, with are tedious and require significant expert human analysis. Chemometric classification strategies have been applied to automate the method, and reduce the need for constant expert analysis of the data. In this work, the performance of a new method for multivariate classification, Support Vector Machines (SVM), was compared to classical chemometric methods such as Partial Least Squares (PLS), and Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), in classifying feed particles as either MBM or vegetal using the spectra from NIR images. While all three methods were able to effectively model the data, SVM was found to perform substantially better than PLS and ANN, exhibiting a much lower rate of false-positive detection.
