We provide independent trained & untrained panels

Independent sensory evaluation provides valuable information to food marketers and product developers, as well as quality assurance and research & development groups. Sensory evaluation panels are helpful in determining changes in raw ingredients or packaging (for cost reduction / supplier changes), product acceptability, new product flavor, competitor product analysis, correlations to instrumental analysis, or product changes during storage. Maintaining an in-house trained sensory panel in a food manufacturing facility can be difficult because time and resources are limited and internal panelists may be biased.

Maintaining an in-house trained sensory panel in a food manufacturing facility can be difficult because time and resources are limited and internal panelists may be biased. We provide trained sensory panels that evaluate:

  • Off-flavor identification
  • Flavor attribute identification and quantitation
  • Flavor profile analysis
  • Quantitative descriptive analysis (QDA)

We provide food companies with untrained sensory panels to evaluate a variety of general consumer testing.

  • Consumer panels
  • Triangle tests
  • Duo-trio tests
  • Simple difference tests
  • Difference from control

We offer support services and expert analysis for:

  • Product acceptability
  • Shelf life determination
  • Product contamination
  • Ingredient comparisons
