Other industry sectors for texture analysis applications

Consumer products in sectors other than foods for human consumption are also judged by sensory interaction – finger feel, skin feel particularly. In the case of pet food and animal feel, mouthfeel is also influential in acceptance by the animal and hence success of the product brand.  Measurement of the physical textual properties of these products, such as cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, is essential to the understanding of the impact of their ingredients, formulation and processing on final product quality. FTC’s computer-controlled texture analysis systems come with software to enable research facilities to perform highly specialized texture testing whatever the market sector, and educational establishments to add practical scientific analysis to product design disciplines. Explore these other industry capabilities and solutions in more detail:

As a seasonal vegetable processor, understanding crop maturity and the accuracy of this measurement is key to staying ahead of crop and knowing when to make the move from value to premium product as harvest time constraints permit.

The TU units provided by FTC give us the accuracy to work to much tighter tolerances, replacing older less accurate analogue equipment which in turn can affect final product grading and profitability.

The units are well designed, very low maintenance and are backed up with a strong support service which will allow them to provide many years of accurate, reliable service.

As a Meat Scientist and program leader for the University of Nevada, Reno, I need to ensure that equipment I use in my lab is reliable, durable, versatile, and accurate. For texture analysis of meats, there are many systems available in the market. Over the last 15 years of my career, I¹ve worked with many of them and had great and bad experiences with different brands.

Last year, I decided to try a different system for my lab, the TMS-Pro Texture Analyzer from Food Technology Corporation. The system has all the attributes I was expecting to conduct texture and shear force analysis in a quick and not complicated way. The customer support provided by them is outstanding and their technicians are always ready to walk me through new procedures and initial set up. If you are looking for a reliable system for food texture analysis and special customer service, the TMS-Pro is the system to go for and the Food Technology Corporation is the one that can deliver the support.
