About this book

Drawing together literature from a variety of fields, "Food Texture and Viscosity, 2E" includes a brief history of this area and its basic principles. It reviews how texture and viscosity are measured, including the physical interactions between the human body and food, objective methods of texture measurements, the latest advances in texture-measuring instruments, various types of liquid flow, and more. This revised edition contains approximately 30 per cent new material, including two new chapters on physics and texture and the correlation between physical measurements and sensory assessments. It now includes two-color illustrations and includes a current list of texture-measuring equipment suppliers. It is written by an award-winning author

Media reviews
Bourne's definitions are well written and easy to understand...this is an excellent resource for a description of how foods are tested and the precision and accuracy of each test... useful for specificity of the types of tests and equipment used and just what they describe. Recommended.-E STREAMS (June 2003) "...recommended for students and professionals in academia and industry, in particular for food technologists interested in measuring, controlling and understanding food texture." -LEBENSMITTEL-WISSENSCHAFT UND-TECHNOLOGIE (March 2003) "The book very readable and provides a lot of information. It covers the whole range of topics related to food texture measurements ranging from sensoric product evaluation to instrumental evaluation in industry and at research centres. ...The book is a a must for everybody working in the field of texture assessment both in industry and in food science laboratories."
