The use of near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIR) method for fast determination of water content in cheeses is the main aim of this study. Experiments were carried out for 25 samples of cottage cheese and 15 samples of hard ripened cheese. The obtained results proved the high statistical correlation between values of spectrum reflectance and the content of water in the samples.
