Viscosity Measurements of Nectar- and Honey-thick Liquids: Product, Liquid, and Time Comparisons

  title={Viscosity Measurements of Nectar- and Honey-thick Liquids: Product, Liquid, and Time Comparisons},
  author={Jane Mertz Garcia and IV EdgarChambers and MA ZiadMatta and MS MeganClark},
This study compared the viscosity (thickness) of five different liquids thickened to nectar- or honey-like consistencies with a variety of thickening products. Samples were prepared using manufacturer guidelines and viscosity was measured at the recommended time to thicken (standard) and also after 10 and 30 min. Centipoise (cP) measurements of the samples were compared across products and within product lines for each level of thickness at all three time periods. Statistical analysis showed… CONTINUE READING
