Food Texture Gelatine and Gel Fixtures
Gelatine and Gel Fixtures
Food Technology Corporation's TMS texture analysers conform directly to ISO 9665 and BS757:1975 or AOAC 23.007 recommendations for gelatin Bloom strength measurement. The FTC product range includes all equipment for the preparation, calibration and analysis of gel samples whether for Bloom strength or other industry procedures. High-level processing power of the TMS Lab Pro software makes detailed analysis of a wide range of other gelled ingredients and products possible. Our fixtures comprise various probes and industry standard gel sample containers.
Bloom Strength Probes
We also provide a general range of probes in the form of cylinders, ball or spherical tipped and blades. These accessories can be used to correlate to unique, in-house, sensory, textural or mechanical characteristics of products with gel and hydrocolloid content.
Bloom Sample Bottles (432-053)
These bottles conform to ISO 9665, GME, AOAC 1985 and BS757 gelatin test standards. Bloom strength test jars are ideal not only for gel Bloom testing, but also testing other food or gel-like products requiring a container, such as pastes and viscous liquids.
The vessels are available as a set of 10 and should ideally be used in conjunction with the TMS standard fixture table (432-243).
- Diameter: 59 mm
- Height: 85 mm
- Capacity: 160 ml (to base of jar neck)
Bloom Sample Bottle Stoppers (432-054)
These stoppers are used in conjunction with the Bloom sample bottles in order to maintain consistent, untainted samples within the bottles and conform to exactly the same standards. Available as a pack of 10.
