We tested the overall hardness and stiffness of seven varieties of bonestyle dog biscuits with the TA.XTPlus Texture Analyzer using a three point bend test. The tests were conducted for a manufacturer of dog biscuits, and included several brand name biscuits. The dog biscuits were tested using an adjustable bridge (TA-92A) and a rounded-end, 70 mm long TA-42 Knife Probe.
