Food Sensory Analysis

Evaluate real human responses to food products based on sight, smell, touch, taste and hearing.

We eat with the full range of our senses. Evaluating food in terms of sense is now a vital part of any new food product’s development and marketing. It provides important insights into consumer behavior and quality assurance.

Capture real human responses

We offer the full suite of food sensory analysis services to support product development and enable trusted assessments of quality and taste. Our expert trained panels consider color, taste, odor and texture, capturing real human reactions using the following methods:

  • Descriptive sensory analysis
  • Duo-trio test

This information can then be used to
