Taste is a sensory mechanism designed to "test" foods and other substances before they enter our body. Taste sensations are perceived through taste buds on the tongue, the roof of the mouth and near the pharynx. Taste buds contain receptors for taste and a nerve conveys the sensation from the taste buds to the brain. This is the mechanism by which we perceive the basic tastes: salty, sweet, bitter, sour and umami.

Sensory quality
producing products with a consistent, reliable quality is essential to the success of your products because once your product fails to meet the desired specifications, consumers will reject it. We can help you ensure that the sensory quality of your products remains consistent by implementing a QC test that is custom-fit to your needs.
