Optimizing Food Packaging Size by Measuring the Tapped Density
A reasonable packaging size in the food industry is important not only to ensure the success of the packaging process, but also to decrease the cost of transporting products. This application note explores how the size of the food powder container is determined by measuring the bulk density and tapped density. In this research, three types of protein powders, including whey protein, soy protein and whey-soy protein mixture, were analyzed by an automatic tapped density tester - The BeDensi T1 Pro. The result demonstrates that the instrument relies entirely on providing food manufacturers with reliable information to determine the optimum packing size and choose a container that is satisfying to the customer.
