Inverse photopyroelectric (IPPE) spectroscopy, a novel variant among the photothermal spectroscopies, has been used for direct determination of (Kpc)½ in a variety of food samples. The method appears capable of thermal characterization, and when combined with more mature techniques may prove useful in food products industry and storage.
