Is mouth feel important for how customers evaluate your products? Are you new to texture
analysis and what you can do with instruments that measure this property? Do you want a
quick education in less than an hour?
Fundamental Approaches to the Measurement of Food Texture

Dr. Andrew Rosenthal

Did you ever wonder how food companies evaluate "chewiness" of meat, the "snap" of a biscuit or cracker, the "springiness" of bread? Dr Andrew Rosenthal from Oxford Brookes University in
the UK will enlighten listeners on the subject of "Texture Analysis", the science of conducting
compression testing on food items to evaluate physical properties like chewiness. Sensory panels
of human taste experts have now been complimented by an army of instruments that simulate the
action of human teethin biting and grinding food items before swallowing. These simple tests using
Texture Analyzers provide food companies with a new means of ensuring consistent quality in food products. Be sure to join us for an
educational discussion on this important test methodology known as "Texture Analysis"
