RHEOLOGICAL PROPERTIES OF POTATO TISSUE MEASURED BY DYNAMIC OSCILLATION AND ULTRASOUND TECHNIQUES

M. Nielsen, J. Borring, S.M. Jacobsen
Potato texture makes a significant contribution to the overall quality. Measurement of textural changes in potatoes has been carried out previously with a variety of destructive and non-destructive instrumental techniques (Canet et al., 1988; Szczesniak, 1987; Watada, 1989; McClement 1997). One objective of the present study was to develop methods for dynamic measurements of mechanical properties of potato tissue by the use of a controlled stress rheometer and ultrasound technique. A further aim was to investigate the potential use of ultrasound for measuring mechanical properties of potato tissue in relation to different varieties and different dry matter contents.
