Texture Analyzer

Evaluation of texture is often based on sensory evaluation and experience. Usage of texture analyzer is rapid, objective and more sensitive and reproducible than subjective sensory judgment. The texture analyzer system uses controlled conditions of stress or strain to food and other samples to measure a complete texture profile. It accurately measures compressive and tensile force and position over time using standard test modes including single and multiple cycle compression, tensile strength, compress-and-hold, extend-and-hold, fracturability and springback to describe product texture. Data is captured as a graph and stored in separate projects/files for analysis and export to spreadsheet programs.

Description

Texture Analyzer

A simple, efficient, versatile and friendly system suits the needs of the food industry. With it’s easy to use and large library of standard starter methods in software, user easily able to analyze any samples with high sensitivity, accuracy and reproducible complete texture profiles. The system is supplied with two Load Cells. Change between the two in less than a minute. Standard and custom tests for hardness/firmness/softness, fracturability (brittleness), cohesiveness, adhesiveness/stickiness, springiness (elasticity), chewiness, gumminess, stringiness/shortness.
