Cream Cheese Firmness

Situation

A dairy foods processor wanted a quantifiable, consistent way to detect differences between two cream cheese products.

This processor had just formulated a new, low-fat cream cheese product and needed a way to measure the effects on its texture from changing the formulation from regular to low-fat.

 

Method

The TMS-Pro texture analyzer system along with the penetration test method proved to detect the differences among the two cream cheese products and through numerous samples, proved to be consistent and repeatable.

 

Benefits

1. Quick and easy test that gives repeatable, objective results that are nearly real time with the processing

2. Reduces the possibility of downtime due to a product that does not meet quality standards

 

Significance

The TMS-Pro texture analyzer system along with the penetration test method proved to detect the differences among the two cream cheese prdoucts and through numerous samples, proved to be consistent and repeatable.
