The texture is the feel, appearance or consistency of something. This can be both a visual and “in-mouth” experience as part of food product development and something that needs to be considered as part of your product to ensure the desired end effect with inclusions.

When considering texture is it a crunch, chew, or perhaps a biscuity texture you desire.
