Sensory evaluation is a tool used to measure human response to a variety of stimuli. Students gain knowledge on the types of sensory evaluation methods that are commonly used and application of the methods in both product development and human nutrition. Students develop skills in implementing and analysing basic sensory tests. Topics include: discrimination testing, descriptive analysis, hedonic testing, individual differences in perception, food quality perception, and product development. Knowledge and skills obtained through this unit are important for students who seek employment in the food industry (e.g. product developers, brand builders, consumer marketing insight manager, and sensory panel leader), nutrition and health related organisations (e.g. Nutrition Australia) and research (e.g. market research agency, sensory and consumer scientist, food scientist and market analyst).
