The textural properties of a model gel system have been investigated by employing an experimental design concerning the effect of agar (1–3%), mango pulp (0–50%) and sugar (0–20%). A gel characterization method, based on the principle of penetration-shearing, has been applied to determine the response functions (fracture strain, fracture stress, energy for penetrationshearing and firmness). These textural indices can be fitted well (0.858≤r≤0.953, p≤0.01) to second order polynomials. Agar possesses the maximum effect and an increase in agar content markedly increases these indices while sugar imparts mostly a curvilinear effect; a failure strain as high as 33% has been achieved by increasing the agar content. The individual optimization (maximization), based on canonical analysis, on these indices indicates that agar content to be more than 2.8%. Gels with extensively varying textural properties can be achieved by changing the proportions of these ingredients.
