Lloyd TA1 food texture analyser for testing meat chewiness

Monday, 01 August, 2022 | Supplied by: Bestech Australia Pty Ltd


The Lloyd TA1 food texture analyser is suitable for conducting detailed texture analysis on food and packaging with applications up to 1 kN. The laboratory-scale texture analyser can be fitted with a variety of jigs and fixtures to test a wide range of food products.

For example, the system can be fitted with fixtures such as Volodkevitch Bite Sets, Kramer Shear Cells or the Warner Bratzler Shear Blade to test the textural quality of steak, burger patties or plant-based meat products. These jigs are designed to mimic the actions and forces required to shear through the samples. The results can be correlated to the tenderness, chewiness or firmness of the products which determines their eating quality.

The TA1 food texture analyser also has a large working area up to 180 mm for testing a larger sample. This configuration provides flexibility for a wide range of applications. The load cells used in this material testing machine offer accuracy of ±0.5% and the system has a high data sampling speed up to 8 kHz. Additionally, users can also configure up to 10 test set-ups and store up to 600 test results for easy traceability.

The texture analyser has built-in software for onboard data analysis. It allows the operator to control and monitor all aspects of the system, from testing and configuration to data analysis. Users can also optionally upgrade to advanced NexyGENPlus data analysis software to access a direct interface with Excel, Word and current operating systems.
