Food Quality


IFR Extra can help you in all aspects of food quality; we help reduce changes in quality that occur during processing or storage.


Texture Analysis

IFR Extra consultants are experts in understanding the textural qualities of food products. We use our specialist knowledge and testing capabilities (instrumental and sensory) to help food processing companies formulate new products and improve existing products.


Examples of textural properties: Crispness, Crunchiness, Juiciness, Mealiness, Chewiness, Hardness, Brittleness & Elasticity


“We highly recommend IFR Extra for texture analysis” Harry Schimanski, Stable Micro Systems.
