Sensory*:
Sensory testing can play an important role in determining product acceptability by evaluating flavor, texture, appearance, and overall acceptance. Acceptance testing and descriptive analysis are ideal tools for competitive testing, developing products, or shelf-life studies. Our sensory professionals can also evaluate your current testing program and train your production and quality assurance staff.
