Investigating the Full Picture of Adhesive Testing

The development of Texture Analysers has opened up a wealth of opportunities for adhesive testing and analysis. 

Most recently the ability to replay, freeze-frame and share your product testing data using a Video Capture and Synchronisation System has been introduced. This is a fantastic tool for teaching others about the nature of your product and for those new to the field or, more importantly, to help you gain a frame-by-frame understanding of your product failure.

Texturisers – Creating Amazing First Impressions for Food Products

Texture has always been an important consideration during product development. It often determines a consumer’s first impression and thereby offers a lasting impression to the eating experience.

Innova Market Insights has reported a significant increase in front-of-package texture claims and the addition of creative language to communicate the texture message. Ingredients also appear to be advancing to, for example, improve the crunchiness of chips, the chewiness of soft candies, the creaminess of sour cream, and much more, allowing for the formulation of a myriad of products that consumers crave.
