Introduction

Over the past fifty years sensory analysis of foods has grown from an informal "taste test" performed by bench top chemists and product developers to a science comprising basic tenets, accepted methods, and defined statistical analyses. The scientific literature of sensory analysis comprises investigations of sensory processes (the way we respond to physical stimuli), methodological studies of "taste testing" (how to assess reactions to food products in a test situation), and statistical experimental design (how to set up systematically varied formulations of products). The actual physiology and psychophysics of the sensory systems involved in sensory analysis (viz, taste, smell, touch, appearance) are dealt with elsewhere in this volume. Data about the physical characteristics of food belong properly to the domain of food science. Sensory analysis is the nexus where these different disciplines join.
