Texture analysis

Monday, 31 August, 2009 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific



Texture analysis is primarily concerned with the evaluation of mechanical characteristics where a material is subjected to a controlled force from which a deformation curve of its response is generated. These mechanical characteristics in food can be further subdivided into primary and secondary sensory characteristics.

The Brookfield CT3 texture analyser is a powerful, universal testing machine that offers both compression and tensile testing. It can calculate, through compression and tensile data, a number of physical properties that have proven to be highly correlated to human sensory evaluation of food and other consumer products.

With six built-in test modes and ten memory slots for operator-protected tests with administrator rights, a wide choice of accessories and an optional software package, the CT-3 is suitable for most physical testing requirements.

The CT3 is said to perform like a high-end texture analyser and its uses can expand with different applications.
