For issues of flavor, texture and color, our analytical services include expert sensory evaluation and descriptive sensory analysis tailored to meet your needs.
Current capacity includes:
- Descriptive panels for flavor and texture analysis. Spectrum trained panels describe the food, rating the various attributes applicable to the product.
- Difference/Similarity testing. We look at a control product(s) and determine degree of difference or similarity to tell you where your product stands in the mix.
- Triangle testing. This is another approach to Difference/Similarity testing, allowing you to see whether or not two products are different.
- Temporal Methods. We record perception of sensory attributes over time. Methods available include Temporal Dominance of Sensations (TDS), Time Intensity (TI), and Temporal Check-All-That-Apply (TCATA).
For a reasonable set of samples (less than a dozen), we typically offer a week turnaround.
