Sequential analysis of bolus characteristics.

<p>Changes observed during the progress of masticatory sequence in mechanical hardness (A), adhesiveness (B), cohesiveness (C) and springiness (D) calculated on data obtained from TPA performed at 65% deformation, associated changes in proportions of subjects perceiving hardness (E) stickiness (F) and dryness (G) as being dominant in the bolus, and bolus median particle size (H). Bars represent slopes calculated between values from two consecutives boluses.</p>
