The Mini Texture Analyzer, by AGROSTA, combines ease of use and precision. Its maximum pressure capacity is 1 kg with a precision of 0.1 grams.
Our mini texturometer comes with 3 different tips and the software for Windows. The limit of 1 kg is not a problem for hard materials, just use tips of smaller diameter, or needle, and you will obtain consistent results.
Thanks to the software, you can manage up to ten parameters like strokes, low speed, high speed.
You can perform tests of global firmness on any food, soft materials, foams, gels or springs. You can as well measure the springiness (form memory) with a second movement (time between the 2 movements adjustable, as well as stroke and speed of each movement).
The texture profile is displayed on the computer, and you can export the raw data to Word or Excel.
