Measurement of food texture by a universal testing machine


, : Measurement of food texture by a universal testing machine. Food Technol 20(74): 170-174

A testing machine was studied as a means of measuring food texture. A strip chart recorder that is an integral part of the machine draws a force-distance curve for each test. It is possible from these curves to obtain the maximum force, slope, area, plateau height, relaxation, recovery and yield points for use as quality indices. Examples are given for cherries, peas, potato chips and apples. The design of the machine permits the use of a variety of test cells (sample holders).
