Abstract: Here we present an alternative method for the detection of meat and bone meal (MBM) in feedstuffs by using near-infrared microscopy (NIRM) analysis of the particles in the sediment fraction of compound feeds. The particles of the sediment fraction are spread on a sample holder and measured with the NIR microscope. Using the pointer of the microscope the infrared beam is focused on each particle and the NIR spectrum (1112-2500 nm) is collected. The detection level as low as 0.05% mass fraction. The results of the NIRM method have been compared with the classical microscopic method, obtaining a coefficient of determination (R2) of 0.87. The results of this study demonstrated that this method could be proposed as a complementary tool for the detection of banned MBM in feedstuffs through the reinforcement of the control of feeds.
