Surimi and Surimi Seafood
Jae W. Park (Editor)
"Park and colleagues, along with the U.S. surimi industry leaders, evaluated 12 samples of surimi gels with a wide range of quality using five units of conventional rheometer or rheotex and two units of TA.XTplus Texture Analyser. Table values show that soft gel could not be measured using any of the five conventional units, while two units of the TA.XTplus were able to detect the gel values. Indeed, the accuracy of the measurement, based on the standard deviation, was much higher with the TA.XTplus instrument. This accuracy might have been due to the ability to calibrate the instrument as needed."
