  Working Principles
Click to ViewThe principle of texture measurement system is to physically deform a test sample in a controlled manner and measure its mechanical properties response. Forces created this movement recreate consumer interactions and automatically transform them into numerical values displayed on screen.

  Applications
  User Instructions
1. Determination of textural properties such as rupture force energy, cutting force strength etc. of food products. 2. It is used to measure chewiness, springiness, gumminess, scoopyness, puncture and rupture force etc. of various food items. 1. Turn on instrument and its software 2. Load project, calibrate height and apply appropriate probe 3. Go to run a test, apply settings 4. Put the sample at platform and run tests 5. Select all runs, run macro and save the data at appropriate place 6. Turn off first software and then instrument
