Food Testing Using Instron Electromechanical System
This video illustrates a puncture test performed on an apple using Instron electromechanical system. Testing food samples for texture-related properties allows the food industry to improve on existing products as well as develop new ones.
Food technologists use precision tools to determine texture qualities of food, which include tenderness, brittleness, gumminess, viscoelasticity, chewiness and ripeness.
