Measuring pH in food is a useful indicator of consistency over batches for quality control but can also be used to monitor foods where the pH changes over time – for example in yogurt production, brewing or to test the freshness of foods.
Standard pH electrodes will often struggle when used in food samples, as the reference junction becomes blocked the reaction time will get slower and eventually the electrode will fail.
Using an electrode that is designed to cope with food samples will ensure longer life and more accurate results.
So what options are available to test the pH of food products?

Hard water is water with high levels of dissolved minerals, and usually occurs in areas where limestone and chalk are common.
These minerals can be divided into two types, and so hardness is often considered in two categories – permanent and temporary water hardness.
So how can we measure water hardness? Can we measure temporary and permanent hardness separately?
