Abstract
This work is about creating a uniform language for Formidabel. At Formidabel, a panel of seven people was selected for sensory tests. One of the selected sensory tests was an identification test. The purpose of this test is to teach a new panel to detect aromas. The panel tested mashed potatoes containing different kinds of spices for each test. They were also tested with an identification threshold test, where the basic tastes were tested. The tests were conducted in a conference room at Formidabel, right next to their kitchen and laboratory. This work is also containing background information about our senses, how we detect taste, spices, aromas and the basic tastes. Some of this material was used at small lectures for the tasting panel... (More)
This work is about creating a uniform language for Formidabel. At Formidabel, a panel of seven people was selected for sensory tests. One of the selected sensory tests was an identification test. The purpose of this test is to teach a new panel to detect aromas. The panel tested mashed potatoes containing different kinds of spices for each test. They were also tested with an identification threshold test, where the basic tastes were tested. The tests were conducted in a conference room at Formidabel, right next to their kitchen and laboratory. This work is also containing background information about our senses, how we detect taste, spices, aromas and the basic tastes. Some of this material was used at small lectures for the tasting panel to give them more understanding for the work we were doing. The results of the identification test gave 118 different words and expressions. After a couple of weeks the test resulted in a spider diagram that was used as a testing form for the rest of the tastings. It helped some of the panel members with their associations of the spiced up mashed potatoes. The compilation of the spider diagrams shows a spectrum of tastes over the different kinds of spices that were used. The panel was never trained for coherent testing with the spider diagram scale. The identification threshold test gave a positive result during the weeks that past but some of the panel members need more training. Keywords: sensory tests, spices and herbs, identifications test, identifications threshold test (Less)
