Mixture designs and corresponding analysis techniques are of considerable importance in food science and industry. The present paper presents a case study where two mixtures are combined, in a way very similar to how mixture and factorial designs are combined in mixture-process situations. This special type of extension will here be referred to as a crossed mixture experiment. The case study is based on data from a project devoted to obtaining better understanding of the relative influence of the quantity and source of the biochemical components in sausages.
