Spoon tilt test:

- The texture is cohesive enough to hold its shape on the spoon

- If the spoon is tilted, tilted to one side or shaken, the food will tip over or fall off; the food should slide off easily and leave only a very small amount of food residue on the spoon, which means that the food sample should not be very sticky

- Piles of food pellets may spread slightly or collapse on the plate.
