The ability to use the Hunter Citrus Colorimeter d45 for the objective measurement of lemon juice color was studied. The correlation coefficient between 25 panelists’ visual ranking of lemon juice lightness to darkn4ess and colorimeter D45 color scores was 0.98. This paper presents the methods used in preparing the lemon juice sample for color measurement and the implication of the sensory results for the potential use of the Hunter Citrus Colorimeter D45 for lemon juice color measurement by the citrus industry.
