Sensory Testing Facility

One the most exciting aspects of the NoWFOOD Centre, is the sensory unit, which allows producers to gain insight into consumer feedback and opinion. This has 10 cubicles, including disabled access, and a separate technical preparation room that mimics a domestic kitchen.

The Centre can design and implement analytical sensory tests including: difference tests; threshold tests; and descriptive sensory analysis. The facility is well suited to controlled sensory evaluation of food and beverages by trained and semi-trained panels.
