Firmness, toughness

Abstract

Four varieties of diced tomatoes were tested using the TA.XT2 Texture Analyzer with a TA-91 Kramer Shear Cell to determine how well the TA.XT2 Texture Analyzer could differentiate the tomatoes’ firmness compared to the expected differences. The results indicated that the TA.XT2 Texture Analyzer in conjunction with a Kramer Shear cell can easily differentiate between different levels of firmness for diced tomatoes and similarly shaped vegetable and fruit products.
