Texture Analysis in action: the SMS/Chen-Hoseney Dough Stickiness Rig

Dough stickiness test using the TA.XTplus Texture AnalyserThe STABLE MICRO SYSTEMS CHEN-HOSENEY DOUGH STICKINESS RIG (A/DSC) is an improved version of the widely used and acclaimed original development by Prof. Carl Hoseney and Dr. Weizhi Chen at Kansas State University.

The Stable Micro Systems version offers all the advantages of the original, but with added durability, ease of use and ease of cleaning.

Measurement of dough stickiness
Measurement of dough stickiness
The accuracy of the stickiness result is ensured by using a lapped finish cylinder probe, which has a uniform adherence surface, to make the measurement.
Examples of research to date include the investigation of dough stickiness due to overmixing, addition of excess water, overactivity of proteolytic enzymes, difference in wheat varieties and composition.

Papers that use this fixture on a TA.XTplus Texture Analyser have been published,

We can design and manufacture probes or fixtures for the TA.XTplus texture analyser that are bespoke to your sample and its specific measurement.

Once your measurement is performed, our expertise in its graphical interpretation is unparalleled. Not only can we develop the most suitable and accurate method for the testing of your sample, but we can also prepare analysis procedures that obtain the desired parameters from your curve and drop them into a spreadsheet or report designed around your requirements.

For more information on how to measure texture, please visit the Texture Analysis Properties section on our website.
