Sensory analysis gathers different techniques that enable to evaluate the organoleptic properties of a product through its smell, taste or visual aspect

Initially used by the Food and Beverage Industry and Cosmetics, the sensory evaluation is now essential in several areas and plays a major role to ensure products quality.

 

How does sensory analysis work?

In the sensory organs, sensory receptors are subject to a high number of stimuli. This is the origin of aroma, taste, noise detection by humans. Sensory analysis aims at defining product organoleptic features correlated to receptors responses.

 

What do we use sensory evaluation for?

Sensory analysis for Quality Control

Quality Control is important to certify conformity of raw materials, products during production process or final products. Sensory evaluation is intended to determine if products are consistent with sensory specifications or not.

 

Sensory evaluation for Research & Development

Industrial companies keep proposing new formulations and recipes to satisfy consumer desires. Sensory analysis is an unavoidable step to ensure that those new products meet consumer expectations and also to be sure of their products positioning compared to competitors ones, or even verify aroma stability or product shelf life.

 

What is sensory metrology?

In the industry, sensory analysis is often conducted by a sensory panel of human assessors to ensure that the products meet the quality standards.  Many of these sensory evaluation tests can also be achieved by means of laboratory instruments, thus eliminating the potential for human error and the associated subjectivity of the results.
