Potato Chips

Many consumers associate the quality of potato chips with the firmness and initial crunch of the chip. This application study presents a simple method to test the overall firmness of potato chips. The TA.XTPlus, Exponent software, and the TA-101 Crisp Chip Rig were used to measure the firmness of three different brands of classic or original potato chips, Lays Classic, Utz Original, and Market Basket Classic.
