The best customer complaints are the ones that never happen.

Customer Success Story

The Setting

A pharmaceutical company manufactures a pectin-based gummy chewable. The R&D team ran into two significant problems that could be the sources of future consumer complaints. The product’s firmness varied from batch to batch and the sole testing method for firmness was to squish a sample by hand. The product also had some adhesion issues when the gummy pieces stuck and fused together in their containers over time.

Solution

The company contacted our team for assistance with solving these problems. “Using the TA.XTPlus Texture Analyzer, our R&D team could now precisely measure both firmness and adhesiveness. With accurate data now available, we reformulated and refined our product until it was just right. Each product batch is now consistently firm with just the right amount of adhesion meeting our customer expectations perfectly!” –Pharmaceutical Company R&D Specialist
