Sensory evaluation is a multidisciplinary science used to understand human perception and response to the sensory characteristics of foods and non-foods. Products attain market success when they meet consumer need and expectation, and when their benefits are well communicated to the target consumers. Sensory and consumer product research is a tool used to achieve all of these factors by meas-uring sensory differences, and preference, liking and attitudes of consumers toward a product, product concepts, and even services wrapped around products. Applications of sensory evaluation include new product development, product improvement, product maintenance, new product potential or cate-gory appraisal, and product claim substantia-tion, etc.
