Sensory analysis and testing is a vital part of creating a successful food product. But what is actually involved in this process? By comparing the sensory and physical properties of a variety of food products, this video examines appearance, aroma, flavor, and texture, also called mouth feel. The program explains how these characteristics can be evaluated through four types of tests:
- preference tests
- discrimination tests
- difference tests
- profile tests
It then discusses how test findings shed light on the quality and appeal of a finished food product.
