●Feature of TAKETOMO's Texture Analyzers.
In 1966, we developed the first texture analyzer, TEXTUROMETER®,
and manufactured for the General Foods Corporation that
established Texture Profile Analysis (TPA).
Thereafter, our company has focused on the development of analytic
instruments using stress measurement for testing food texture.
Our new challenge began in 1974 with the development of a high-precision texture analyzer
can perform compression tests and extension
tests, The new high-precision
versatile texture analyzer, TENSIPRESSER®
completed with five patents, one design, and one trademark in
TENSIPRESSER® My Boy System was developed as a
compact model of TENSIPRESSER® TTP-50BX without
loosing high-precision in 1993. The programmable movements of
a sample stage and synchronized data acquisition allowed
to establish several new texture tests.
When people eat foods, they feel texture of foods, such as hardness, softness,
chewiness, stickiness, gooiness, rubbery, crispiness, shortness, smoothness.
The feeling of texture is varied from person to person although the physical properties of foods must be fit in acceptable ranges.
TENSIPRESSER® and TEXTUROMETER® can be used for testing physical properties of foods and express textural properties of foods numerically.
