Measuring 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. Measuring food texture involves testing and evaluating 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.
