Viscosity Measurements of Food with the Ball Measuring System for Modular Compact Rheometers

This report describes the advantages of determining the rheological properties of food and shows how measurements with samples containing particles approx. 1 to 5 mm diameter in size can be performed.

1 Introduction

In order to fulfill the demands of customers regarding the rheological behavior of food and to guarantee a constant quality of the products, rheological measurements need to be carried out.

Many food producers already use rotational rheometers for quality control of their products. In most cases, measuring systems like cylinders or stirrers are used.

However, large particles often prevent or influence rheological tests. Therefore, Modular Compact Rheometer (MCR), and RheolabQC devices from Anton Paar can be equipped with a ball measuring system.
