Food texture

Food texture

Food texture is an important sensory attribute as it affects the way food tastes and how it feels in the mouth. The texture depends on the rheological properties of the food and evaluation involves measuring the response of a food when it is subjected to forces such as cutting, shearing, chewing, compressing or stretching.


TA-XT2 texture analyser


Several texture analysis procedures are available, depending on the nature of the product, including penetrometry, cutting tests and three point bend tests. Simultaneous measurement of sound (using an acoustic envelope detector) is possible. This is helpful for characterising crispiness. We also offer development of bespoke texture tests.
