DEFINITIONS OF DEFECTS

 

Clumps

These are where three or more carrots are frozen together which cannot be readily separated without causing damage to the carrot.

 Foreign Material   

This includes any material not derived from the carrot plant or defined as EVM, such as insects, pieces of insects, wood, glass, stones, metal, sand, grit, plastic or any other material which will render the product unacceptable.

 Gross Blemish         

A gross blemish is a black or brown, or decomposed area which covers an area greater than 25% of the surface area of the die.

 

 Major Blemish

A major blemish is a discoloured area (other than green) either as a single blemish or as an aggregate of blemishes covering an area greater than 6mm diameter.

 Greening

A die with greening is one which is green for greater than half its surface area.

 Minor Blemish 

A minor blemish is a discoloured area (other than green) either as a single blemish or an aggregate of blemishes covering an area of less than 6mm diameter.  Single blemishes below 2mm shall be ignored.

 

Oversize

Dice which are larger than one and a half times the declared size in any one or more     dimensions.

 

Undersize

For nominal 10x10x10mm dice, this measurement should be made on a separate 500g sub-sample taken from the 1000g sample used for the assessment of clumps, foreign matter and extraneous vegetable matter.  Undersize pieces are those which fall through a sieve having square holes 8x8mm.  The dice must be sieved in the frozen state.

COLOUR     Bright, deep orange, uniform within the sample.
