Trained Sensory Panel Services


In the Sensory Analysis  area, we perform the following services with trained panels:

  1. Difference Test: aimed to detect if there are statistical differences between two products (due to raw material, processes, storage, packaging, etc)
  2. Comparative Profiles: comparing the most important characteristics of one or several products against a control product, with the purpose of identifying the characteristics that are different and their direction.
  3. Sensory Profile: obtaining a profile or “digital footprint” through a quantitative descriptive analysis (QDA), used mainly for Research and Development.
  4. Sensory Quality: quantitative quality of products, may be used for shelf life determination of products or analysis of competitor products.
  5. Shelf life: evaluation of microbiological and sensory quality through time, with the product stored at different temperatures, to obtain shelf life data and the relationship between temperature and deterioration (accelerated lifetime)

Methodology:  Trained panel according to the ISO 8685-1: 1993 guideline.  Before the evaluation sessions, a specific training is given to the judges on the product and tools.
