The researchers at CASS work closely with the Australian government and food industry to help guide policy and marketing. We also promote sensory and flavour science research both within Australia and internationally.
Research within CASS currently spans across a number of sensory and food topics.
- Sensory panels
- Cross-cultural consumers
- Children as consumers
- Salt and sugar
- Food choice and behaviours
- Non-traditional tastes (fat and carbohydrates)
- Satiety (feeling of fullness)
- Flavour analysis
- Consumer product insight
It is really good to see that the Asian Pacific region now has a substantial research centre that aims to provide the best innovative consumer and sensory science which meets industry and academic needs.
