Fruit Texture: measuring detachment and deseeding force*
Measuring Detachment Force 
Table
grapes are highly perishable, non-climacteric fruits. Their shelf life
is shortened by loss of firmness, berry drop, discoloration of the stem,
desiccation and fungal rots. 
The berry drop is due
basically to dry-drop (...

Fruit Texture: measurement of flesh firmness of non-homogeneous fruits*

Testing
fruits of non-homogenous nature or variable texture, such as water
melons where there is a high seed content, is not only tricky by any
puncture, shearing or compression method, but often results in low
reproducibility and misleading data. 
In ...

Fruit Texture: measurement of flesh firmness of prepared homogeneous fruit samples*
A
compression test may be the preferred test method, but where fruit
samples vary in size this will immediately reflect in the magnitude of
force measured as it is subject to surface area differences and
consequently the reproducibility of results will ...

Biaxial Film Testing using a Texture Analyser – Calculating Fundamental Parameters
The
use of the Film Support Rig can provide a very useful test for
monitoring the quality of irregular objects, such as the toughness of
sliced meat. However, this test setup can also provide more fundamental
stress-strain data if the sample has a known...
