Food Technology Corporation has demonstrated the benefit of a scientific, yet practical, approach to texture analysis since 1966.
 

FTC solutions are trusted by the most successful brands in the food supply and processing industries, where the quality control and assurance value of measuring texture are significant. The same is true for cosmetics and pharmaceutical products in which sensory characteristics are important consumer acceptance criteria. We work with education and research facilities to develop testing methods that further the understanding of how the measurement and correlation of physical texture attributes influence desired product characteristics.

Our texture analyzers offer unrivalled value for money and a 2 year warranty, to set you on the path to consistent quality with confidence.

Texture: If you don’t measure it, you can’t control it!

What our customers say about us

As a Meat Scientist and program leader for the University of Nevada, Reno, I need to ensure that equipment I use in my lab is reliable, durable, versatile, and accurate. For texture analysis of meats, there are many systems available in the market. Over the last 15 years of my career, I¹ve worked with many of them and had great and bad experiences with different brands. Last year, I decided to try a different system for my lab, the TMS-Pro Texture Analyzer from Food Technology Corporation.

I have been using the TMS-Pro mechanical tester in our undergraduate biological materials property course for the past 3 years. The simple setup and operation of the TMS-Pro allows my students to focus on learning the theoretical underpinnings of mechanical properties instead of fighting with a finicky test system. An added bonus is working with Shirl and his amazing team at Food Technology Corporation. They respond almost immediately to questions and inquiries and are always friendly and helpful.

I have found FTC to be an excellent partner for our company. In particular, it has been especially gratifying to work with Shirl Lakeway. Both creative and accommodating, he worked very hard with us to develop our projects. I appreciate his commitment to our joint efforts and his open-minded approach. He and FTC have been exceptionally helpful.

I have been working with FTC for the past 3 years, we bought in that lapse of time 2 texture analyzers with different probes fixtures for all kind of applications at our Monterrey Plant. We have always been able to count on the technical support of FTC who kindly answers our requests in a prompt manner and with the best disposition. As we continue developing our process to achieve better results at our company, we will for sure rely on FTC for technical support and equipment upgrades that will deliver us the best possible results.
