Sensory Testing

Sensory Testing started so as to cover the needs of the big retailers and some food industries. VELTIA Labs for Life, Sensory Testing Lab is located in the Headquarters of the company in Thessaloniki and is equipped with 12 separated chambers, one for each tester.

The aim of the laboratory is to measure, analyze and interpret reactions to those characteristics of foods and drinks which are perceived only by human senses such as sight, smell, taste, hearing and touch, in order to help our clients create competitive products. Another reason for sensory test is to evaluate the product’s life cycle.

The main organoleptic tests are:

  • Product Preference Classification, where the tester classifies products according to taste, classifying the best as first, then the second best and the worst as the last.
  • Quantitative Descriptive Analysis, where a determination of the intensity of the main sensory characteristics of the samples is made, by using an un-numbered scoring ladder
  • Triangular testing where small differences between the samples are determined, for one or more characteristics.
