ABSTRACT

Rheological problems in the food industry deal with the elucidation of structure, processing and handling behavior, and description of textural properties affecting consumer acceptance. Many pmblems are common to other industries, but a number are specific to foods due to the complex nature of the test materials and specific requirements. Application of rheology to foods is difficult but challenging, offers much opportunity for creativity, and has practical and social connotations.
