Density measurement of sauces and dressings with DMA 501 and DMA 1001

When measuring the density of food products and dietary supplements, their inhomogeneous characteristics and often big particles like herbs have to be taken into consideration. This report informs you about the best filling and measurement techniques and lists typical results.


This application report explains that the density of food samples is often used for a weight to volume calculation. Therefore, density measurement is important. The report shows how inhomogeneous or non-Newtonian samples containing particles can be best measured with the density meters DMA 501 and DMA 1001. With suitable instrument settings and filling methods, the measurement results show a good repeatability for their sample type.
