Volunteer for Food Science's consumer taste test


November 8, 2011

Taste panels seeking consumer opinions about pork products will be held Wednesday [Nov. 9] and Thursday [ Nov. 10], from 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m., at the James E. Garrison Sensory Evaluation Laboratory in the Herzer Building.

Graduate students in the Department of Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion will conduct the taste test on Italian pork sausage on Wednesday and pork burger on Thursday. Sixty adult volunteers are needed to evaluate the products on appearance, aroma, texture, taste and overall acceptability to determine which variants in the products are preferred by consumers. Students, faculty, staff and members of the public are invited to participate.

Participants will receive a free drink and snack for their service.
