Application Note

Effect of Humidity on Mechanical Properties of Pasta

Introduction

The mechanical properties of pasta are very important. In its dried form, it is very brittle and quite stiff. If introduced into a humid environment and heated, the properties of the pasta change dramatically. This application note will investigate the effect of humidity on pasta under isothermal and temperature scanning conditions.
