What’s The Recommended QC Test Method For Hamburger Tenderness?

Ground beef in a round disc-like shape called “patty” is a popular dinner choice in many countries. In more recent times, chicken, turkey, and veggie versions of the round patty have gained market attention. Due to ever increasing public demand for this tasty item, the food industry has focused on reliable test methods to assure a pleasing tenderness when the customer bites into and chews the patty. Texture Analyzers are the food industry instrument of choice in Quality Control Departments to run a quick compression test on the raw patty.
