Measure Springiness

Measurement of springiness/recovery of various materials and foods using the TA.XTplus Texture Analyser
SPRINGINESS is the rate at which a deformed material goes back to its undeformed condition after deforming force is removed. 

It is a measurement of elastic recovery – the textural property possessed not only by baked goods such as cakes or breads but also by novel confectionery products and pharmaceutical materials (e.g. cosmetic sponges).
