Hello everybody, 

 

I am researching what kind of test to conduct do define the stretch of a shredded pizza cheese, but all the documentation I find dates back a few decades (early 2000). 

Mostly I found out there is such thing as a pizza fork test, which is rather unreliable, and its scientifically adapted cousin, the USU test. 

I also read about the ring and ball test, which isn't adapted for shredded cheese (only works with slices). 

 

Therefore, I was wondering what test do you guys use? 

 

Best regards,

Pauline

Hi Pauline

 

Yes data about stretch test of cheese  is some what dated. I have found this paper published in 2012 which may be of help

 

The author claimed good repeat ability and it does not appears to be very complicated

 

Kind regards

Thank you Dr Humaid Khan, but I don't see the title of the article you are talking about? 

 

Best regards,
