Sensory Science has access to more than 300 sensory science experts, including a large number of experienced application developers. All sensory features of a product are considered: appearance, odour, taste, mouthfeel and sound. The results are pooled in strictly objective and purely descriptive profiles.
SCS analyses worldwide consumer acceptance and emotions before, during and after product tasting. In this way, reliable and realistic information can be gained on how products are rated and perceived in comparison to benchmark products in the market.
We offer entry-level and advanced sensory and consumer science seminars as well as customised sensory courses for different product categories (e.g. yoghurt, chocolate, smoothies, juices,…). The seminars can be held at your location and tailored to your needs and wishes.
SCS flavour reference boxes are designed for training analytical panels. These make language development and the standardisation of sensory descriptors easier. The flavour references are also available as sniffing sticks.
