TMS spreadability jig

TMS spreadability jigThe TMS butter and margarine spreadability jig is used to measure the spreading (extrusion) texture of table spreads and waxes, or other similar products. Cosmetic or pharmaceutical creams may correlate well to sensory testing with this fixture.

The set comprises a set of three conically recessed sample presentation container s and conical probe, with a matching cone angle of 90 degrees. Prepared sample is forced between the cone surfaces during the compression cycle, initially penetrating, then extruding the product.

The University of Arizona’s Nutritional Sciences Food Lab acquired a Texture Analyzer from Food Technologies about 5 years ago. The company has a great product, which is tailored to food needs. 

We have used the Texture Analyzer for both research projects and as a tool to demonstrate to students how food manufacturers can employ objective testing in product evaluation to show how differing ingredients in the same product can affect quality attributes. Its use adds another dimension to the foods labs.

Drew Lambert has been instrumental in helping with set up for testing and providing support whenever there’s a question. He has been a pleasure to work with and is always accommodating with our needs and schedules.  He has even sent us special attachments for special projects.  We couldn’t ask for a better technical support.  Thanks for a great product and great service.
