This work studies the ability of a MicroNIR (VIAVI, Santa Rosa, CA) device to monitor the dry fermented sausage process with the use of multivariate data analysis. Thirty sausages were made and subjected to dry fermentation, which was divided into four main stages. Physicochemical (weight lost, pH, moisture content, water activity, color, hardness, and thiobarbiruric reactive substances analysis) and sensory (quantitative descriptive analysis) characterizations of samples on different steps of the ripening process were performed. Near-infrared (NIR) spectra (950–1650 nm) were taken throughout the process at three points of the samples. Physicochemical data were explored by distance to K-Nearest Neighbor (K-NN) cluster analysis, while NIR spectra were studied by partial least square–discriminant analysis; before these models, Principal Component Analysis (PCA) was performed in both databases. The results of multivariate data analysis showed the ability to monitor and classify the different stages of ripening process (mainly the fermentation and drying steps). This study showed that a portable NIR device (MicroNIR) is a nondestructive, simple, noninvasive, fast, and cost-effective tool with the ability to monitor the dry fermented sausage processing and to classify samples as a function of the stage, constituting a feasible decision method for sausages to progress to the following processing stage.
