Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on the science of sensory evaluation Paper must be at least 2000 words. Please, no plagiarized work! Sensory evaluation is sometimes done to label a product as acceptable or unacceptable. Sensory evaluation gives information about the typical characteristics of the food product or any of its ingredients so that any necessary change can be made to the food item or any ingredient can be avoided or replaced. A sensory analysis on a final product or newly introduced product would judge whether the food item is in line with its original specification. Feedback is collected after sensory evaluation so that any small or big amendment may be made to improve the product. Further evaluation would include the analysis of the food properties. Properties of the food and its ingredients are scientifically measured. These measured scientific properties are analyzed and interpreted to get the results.
The sensory analysis would tell how the assessed food item is perceived through the five senses. Appearance, taste, smell, touch, and hearing are the five factors that are used as parameters to analyze the food item. The colour of the food item, its smell, its taste, its physical nature, and sound would grade it. The colour of a food item would reveal some of its properties. For example, deep fried items and those with artificial colour would reveal its nature through its colour. The smell of gravy will reveal the presence or absence of spices in it. Taste of a food item would disclose a majority of its ingredients. The taste would reveal what is included and what is missing. As we touch a cake we will understand how much cream is used for making it. If you want to test a piece of banana or potato chips you just need to bite it once. The sensory evaluation would thus give a complete analysis of a food item.
Sensory evaluation is very much required for newly developed products. The sensory analysis would check whether a newly developed product is unique or comparable to another product of the same range. Some products may be complete imitations of another product which is already established. Some may be having wonderful new properties that make it different from the already established product. . .
