Healthy living presents new textural challenges

Texture Analyser in use
As manufacturers work hard to comply with the ever increasing demands of the modern day consumer – be it low-fat, low-sugar, high fibre – texture analysis plays an increasingly important role. 

Continual enhancement of the quality of existing products, as well as NPD, is key to the success of a brand. Using sophisticated texture analysis instruments, manufacturers can ensure high quality production and, ultimately, consumer satisfaction.

Weight management and healthy eating are still top of the agenda for today’s consumer. Recent reports show that consumer awareness of the importance of nutrition and nutritious consumption is ever increasing  – statistics which are supported by an upsurge in sales of low-fat, low-calorie, high-fibre and omega-3 rich products.
