Texture analysis instruments for testing nearly every food product imaginable.
What's your product's story?
Whether you are creating a new product, reformulating an existing one, or simply trying to measure how your product compares to the competition, our texture analyzers help you understand the whole story. For over 25 years, our TA.XT Texture Analyzers have been the most popular texture analyzers worldwide. Their popularity is due in part to the ever-growing number of probes, fixtures, test methods and available applications, and the expertise that we deploy for our customers.
Foods which are tested with our instruments range from extremely soft gels (such as pectin, gums, stabilizers, colloids, hydrocolloids, agars, carageenan, surimi, protein gels, etc.) to the extremely hard products (almonds, nuts, hard candy, etc).
Our instruments and software can quantify many texture analysis parameters including ones that competing instruments cannot. If you want to measure parameters such as firmness, relaxation, swelling, adhesiveness/stickiness, tack, tackiness, resilience, springiness, cohesiveness, and extensibility we offer you the perfect tools for the job.
