Sensory tests

We control the entire test process, from the design of the protocol to the analysis of the results, this allows us to adapt our offers to your requests and to offer you the most efficient test.

DIFFERENCE / SIMILITUDE TESTS

They are used to demonstrate a sensory difference that can be perceived between samples, regardless of the nature of the difference, and if the difference concerns one or more descriptors, and if it is known or unknown.  Under certain conditions, these tests can also highlight similarities between samples.

 

A SESSION AT Sensostat

AIMs

PAIRED COMPARISON TEST:

The aim is to determine which product out of two is the most …

TRIANGULAR TEST:

Three samples are presented, two of which are identical, the aim is to identify which is different from the other two.

TWO OUT OF FIVE TEST:

Five samples of two products are presented (three of one and two of the other), the aim is to put identical products together. This test does not leave much to chance.

 SELECTION OF THE PANEL

The efficiency of these tests is directly related to the quality of the panel members (ability to perceive and describe sensations, personal interest and motivation, accuracy, repeatability, homogeneity, etc.) It is for this reason that we select a panel of experts that becomes a genuine measuring tool according to your criteria. The members of this panel are regularly evaluated and are able to provide objective answers

PROCESSING THE RESULTS

The results of descriptive tests are statistically analysed in accordance with the standards in force and even beyond.

REPORT

Results are transmitted as a full report detailing the results obtained in the form of numerical data, graphs, tables, etc.

descriptive TESTS

The sensory profile allows, through a trained panel, to measure the sensory characteristics of several products of a same category. It is objective and is used to establish the sensory identity card of the products.

SensoStat also controls and adapts other types of more recent descriptive tests, to work with consumers to explore the products throughout their tasting, to establish a sensory map without training (for example: free sorting, TDS – Temporal Dominance of Sensations, PSP -Polarised Sensory Positioning), etc.

DESCRIPTIVE TESTS ARE PART OF THE R&D PROCESS FOR YOUR PRODUCT:

SELECTION OF THE PANEL :

Differentiation tests can be performed by a panel of experts, trained and selected for the evaluation of a product family in order to obtain an objective response, or by a panel of consumers: all depends on the objective of the test!

PROCESSING THE RESULTS :

The results of discriminating tests are statistically analysed in accordance with the standards in force.

REPORT :

Results are transmitted as a full study report detailing the results obtained in the form of numerical data, graphs, tables, etc.
