Laser scanning confocal microscopy (LSCM), one of the most powerful techniques in multidimensional and chemical microscopy, has the potential applications in food research. The method not only provides an image with better resolution than conventional light microscopy or fluorescence microscopy, but also provides an opportunity to observe a 3-D image without the need to physically section and observe the sample in the z-direction. Additionally, it can distinguish the spatial location of different components by detecting fluorescence from dyes specific to different chemical species.
