Food Texture Analysers
Food Technology Corporation’s TMS texture analysers are standalone systems which use software control (Texture Lab Touch or Texture Lab Pro) to perform a variety of texture tests. They are complete texture measurement systems, based on the principle of the universal testing machine, specifically designed to perform texture analysis. They also have the ability to program and automate custom test procedures and accept a large selection of fixtures and load cells.
There are seven fundamental methods which form the basis of the mechanical testing for sensory texture attributes. These test types replicate all possible interactions between a consumer - or production processing or handling equipment - and the product itself.
The range of texture analysis applications is flexible enough to be applied to any product for which the physical texture is a significant factor in quality and customer acceptance. Valuable texture measurement and analysis is applicable to all food sectors and other industries.
