Title (EN) METHOD OF MEASURING THE FIRMNESS OF MEAT
(FR) PROCEDE DE MESURE DE FERMETE DE LA VIANDE
Abstract:
(EN) A method of measuring the firmness of a variety of food products, particularly muscular food, mainly fish fillets, employs the measurement of deformation of a food sample under a predetermined pressure and the measurement of rebound when the pressure is subsequently reduced. The firmness is determined as a rebound-to-deformation ratio.
(FR) Procédé de mesure de la fermeté de toute une série de produits alimentaires, en particulier d'aliments d'origine musculaire et surtout de filets de poisson, s'appuyant sur la mesure de la déformation d'un échantillon alimentaire soumis à une pression prédéterminée et sur celle de rebond au relâchement de la pression. La fermeté est déterminée par le rapport entre rebond et déformation.
