Texture Evaluation

Part of the Food Science Text Series book series (FSTS)


In this chapter the sensory evaluation of texture is discussed. The concept of texture is defined and then the visual, auditory, and tactile textures related to food (and to some extent textiles) are described in detail. Sensory texture measurements, specifically the Texture Profile Method, are described followed by a relatively brief discussion of correlations between instrumental and sensory texture measurements.
