Palatability of rice is an important evaluation index of rice taste quality [1-2].
With the development of society and the improvement of people's living standard, the palatability of rice is attracting more and more attention [3-4].
At present, the evaluation of rice palatability is mainly sensory evaluation, which has some shortcomings such as complicated operation procedure and strong subjectivity.
Therefore, in recent years, people have been trying to measure the palatability of rice by means of instruments, in order to replace the sensory evaluation and provide a more objective, accurate and rapid evaluation method for the palatability of rice.
Texture Profile Analysis (TPA) can simulate the chewing process of oral teeth through the mechanical process of continuous compression twice on the sample, so as to digitize and objective the palatability index.
At present, the methods to determine the rice quality and structure of two kinds: one is the grain method, namely, randomly selected from the rice grain number of grain, appropriate in different ways (radial, star, parallel, circular) is put in the determination of structure instrument platform , but as a result of the test selected MiFanLi less (usually 3 pills), which resulted in increased error;
The other is the rice cake method, that is, the rice is cooked in a selected container, and the rice is directly measured after it is sorted after cooling. This method reflects the overall texture characteristics of the rice, but does not reflect the texture characteristics of a single rice grain.
This paper by the methods of grain and rice cakes were determined rice quality and structure, through the analysis of variance and coefficient of variation analysis and comparison of the differences between the test data and stability, to find the method for determination of rice quality and structure, at the same time, the main method to determine parameters (compression ratio and compression rate) optimization, suitable for rice quality and structure of the testing parameters, for the quality and structure instrument quickly and accurately determine the quality and structure of rice quality.

Texture analyzer, as a kind of food sensory analysis instrument, has been widely used in the field of leisure food, with the advantages of simple operation, objective data and the ability to observe the stress curve of the sample.
The texture of jelly can be measured by texture analyzer in order to study and discuss the processing technology or technology.
St-z16 texture analyzer (physical property analyzer) can be used to test the physical properties of samples in the fields of food, biology, pharmacy and chemical industry, including hardness, elasticity, crispness, mastication, firmness, toughness, ductility, resilience, gel strength and other texture analyzer (physical property analyzer).
St-z16 structure instrument is a electromechanical integration product, adopting modern mechanical design concept and ergonomic design criteria, using advanced dual CPU microcomputer processing technology for careful and reasonable design.
