TEMPO 5 study

​Which tastes and textures do you perceive while eating sausage, cheese, yogurt and bread?
Current methods to measure sensory perceptions of foods asks directly after tasting what a consumers is perceiving. Tastes and textures, however, change during consumption and can be considered a dynamic event. Measuring sensory perceptions dynamically can lead to new insights on how to measure taste and texture experiences and improved methods to measure sensory perceptions of food. The purpose of this study is to investigate dynamic taste and texture characteristics of drink yogurt, bread, cheese and sausage. With this study we will try to better understand taste perceptions and how we can improve our measurement methods to measure taste experiences of consumers.
