Is it always bad practise to have variations in colour for all food products?

Is it always bad practise to have variations in colour for all food products? When it comes to food production, most companies want to ensure that there are no variations in colour, as this shows brand consistency and quality. Take for example a packet of biscuits, if each biscuit was a different colour, you would question the quality of the product and whether some biscuits were either burnt or undercooked. However, the above is not always the case. With all the recent stories in the media about the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle, we are becoming more...

Metamerism is a very common phenomenon and yet consumers do not expect the colour of an item they purchased to change.   It is therefore very important to ensure that multiple components of a product which may be manufactured by different suppliers or in different materials such as polymer resins, painted and coated surfaces and...

Why does fabric darken when wet?

Why does fabric darken when wet?

Why does fabric darken when wet? The way we perceive colour is by the light which hits the object we are looking at. When white light (containing all colours) hits a blue dress, all the colours in the light are absorbed by the dress, apart from blue, which gets emitted. This blue light emitted by the dress is why it appears blue to us.  So why do fabrics darken noticeably when they become wet? Simplistically speaking it is because the mixture of water and cloth bends the light allowing less of it to reach our...
