Measuring food products

Together with IMADA, for whom we have been the official agents for over 3 decades, we offer a range of measuring instruments for food products.

SOMECO offers various machines for these tests:

  • Food hardness testing unit:

These manual test benches are used to measure hard foods such as rice or cookies to assess their hardness.

  • Food texture analyzer (rheometer):

The rheometer or food texture analyzer is a laboratory device used to measure the characteristics of a material. The rheometer applies stress to the sample and measures the response in terms of strain, deformation or applied force. This makes it possible to determine how materials behave under different conditions.

Different types of test are performed, including :

  • Elasticity test
  • Shear testing
  • Texture test
  • Bending test
