Title : Impact of the speed of the measuring head of the texture measuring device on the obtained values of basic differentiators of the texture profile analysis of Capresi cheese
Key words : TPA, cream cheese Capresi, velocity of the measuring head
Summary :

The objective of the paper was to obtain the impact of the velocity of measuring head on measuring values of basic differentiators of the profile analysis of texture (TPA) such as: hardness I and II, cohesiveness, adhesiveness, elasticity, chewability and gumminess as well as resilience. The investigated material was subject to double compression to 50% of original height at the following head speeds: 0.5; 0.83 1.0; 1.2; 1.5 (mm•s-1). Cubic samples of cream cheese of Italian type Capresi with the side length of 15 (mm) were analysed. The obtained test results proved that statistically significant differences (at α=0.05) were reported only in few cases between the results obtained for particular analysed levels of the measuring head speed. However, one may report clear trends of changes of TPA differentiators values with increase or decrease. The increase of hardness differentiators I and II may be reported with the increase of the measuring head speed (however without confirmation of statistically significant differences at α=0.05). A similar trend may be also reported for gumminess and chewability differentiator on account of the head speed from 1.0 to 1.5 (mm•s-1).
