Abstract

Fruit roll-ups (aka fruit leathers) are favored for their distinctive textures which combine firmness, toughness, flexibility and extensibility. Variability in raw ingredients and processing conditions affect product texture, consumer satisfaction and product yield. This study demonstrates four different test and analytical methods on store-bought fruit leathers with the TA.XTPlus Texture Analyzer.
