Cherry Pie Filling
firmness, stiffness, area of work
The consistency of a pie filling is critical to ease of use by the consumer as well as to a pie’s final product quality. The presence of large particulates prevent consistent measurements of the firmness of fillings via rotational viscometers. The TA.XTPlus Texture Analyzer can conduct a back extrusion test with a rounded end probe to provide a sensitive and reliable measurement of the firmness of thick viscous materials. The rounded end probe allows particulates to move aside without negatively affecting the test results for the whole matrix.
