Icings with Particulates - Back Extrusion Test
The TA.XTPlus family of texture analyzers can very precisely quantify the firmness of icings in quality control and R&D applications. Icings are very sensitive to under- or over-mixing and specific textural standards are notoriously difficult to reproduce since results from traditional viscometer-based methods are often too variable. This is especially important with icings that have particulates. Thus repeatable measurement techniques for firmness and adhesiveness are important.
