Texture analyser is designed to evaluate the textural, mechanical and physical properties of a finished product or raw ingredients primarily used in food industry. Texture measurement and texture profile analysis are essential for quality improvement in supply chain and efficiency enhancement of production process.

Texture is the characteristic physical structure given to a material or object, by the size, shape, arrangement, and proportions of its parts or composition. It can be acknowledged and valued by the visual and tactile quality of the surface and described by how the surface, material or substance feels (rough, smooth, hard, soft…etc.). For accurate measurement of the texture of an object, and quantify the quality of its nature, a texture analyser is required.
The principle of a texture measurement system is to deform the sample in a controllable manner and measure its response. Similar to material testing machines, forces created during deformation of testing sample (i.e. food), jigs are manipulated to recreate conditions that foods are exposed to when being eaten or processed. In this way, texture is measured directly and its characteristic performance and “feel” of the testing sample can be envisaged
The TA1 texture analyser is an easy to use, cost effective solution to evaluate the textural properties (compression, shear, extrusion, puncture, hardness forces etc) of a wide range of products at all stages of manufacture. For enhanced performance, the TA1 can be used with Lloyd Instruments NEXYGENPlus data analysis software.
