CONSISTENCY is commonly the textural property possessed by dairy products, sauces, syrups and pharmaceuticals lotions (i.e. fluid products).
It most often makes use of the back extrusion rig for its measurement. Consistency relates to the 'firmness', 'thickness' or 'viscosity' of a liquid or fluid semi-solid.
Stirring a fluid or semifluid food with a spoon or a finger is frequently used by consumers to give an indication of viscosity or consistency.
