Texture Analyzer

The device can perform a quick and accurate texture analysis (TPA) of up to 20kg. Also, it uses a flexible and user-friendly software to increase performance and implement a variety of user tests which is necessary for texture analysis.

In food production, changes in ingredient levels can cause several simultaneous changes in product characteristics. A texture analyzer has the capacity to replace human sensory evaluation by providing a numerical value which serves as a quality assurance standard by which products can be evaluated.

Some of the texture analyzing benefits are:

  • Reliable, repeatable, accurate testing – consistent company-wide

  • Quality assurance – confidence in product performance

  • Processing equipment settings optimization – mixing, transport, storage, and packaging

  • Respond to new regulations or legislation

  • Create new and alternative products with desired texture

  • Cost savings – maximize efficiency

  • Temperature sensor to measure the temperature of the sample
