Indonesia is the first exporter of edible bird’s nest commodities to China. Therefore, the Agricultural Quarantine Agency is one of the agencies responsible for ensuring the fulfilment of the requirements requested by China. One of these conditions is the upper limit of nitrite content in edible bird’s nest commodities. This paper contains the results of research aimed at developing a spectral-based sensor to detect the upper limit of nitrite content and quantitatively measure nitrite content in edible bird’s nest commodities. This spectral sensor is applied to the inspection process for edible bird’s nest commodities which must meet export requirements to China. The objective of this research is to find the spectrums capable of significantly measuring nitrite levels around the required maximum value of 30 PPM. The experimental methodology started by testing 18 spectrum channels to study their effect on nitrite content in edible bird’s nest commodities. The spectrum channels used are in the range from 410 nm to 940 nm with an accuracy of ±12%. The edible bird’s nest commodity that was tested, was pre-treated by pre-conditioning it by making it into a powder so that the level of homogeneity of the nitrite measurement in the edible bird’s nest commodity increased. The results showed that three response frequencies were the most dominant and had a major influence on the results of the measurement of nitrite content in edible bird’s nest commodities around the required maximum value of 30 PPM. The three spectrum channels have wavelengths values of w1=410 nm, w2=435 nm, and w7=560 nm. The three wavelengths mathematically have a linear relationship to the nitrite value measured with an average error value of about 1.88%.
