Technical Abstract: The study of food texture encompasses sensory, physiological, and structural aspects. Research in this area must be multidisciplinary in nature, accounting for consumer perception and acceptability, rheology, and structural aspects. This brief review of the field covers sensory panels, instrumental analysis, microstructure, and acceptability issues, and includes areas where more understanding is needed.
