Using our senses (smell, touch, sight, taste, and hearing), we are able to determine if something is pleasant to us or not. We can then know what things to avoid and what things we want. For example, when eating at a new restaurant, we use our senses to perceive the things in the restaurant. Is the food delicious? Is the place clean? Is the staff polite and friendly? From our observations, we can then decide if the restaurant is worth going back to or not. Sensory Evaluation is just like that. They fill out Sensory Evaluation Forms that contain observations by sample individuals based on their human senses.

Sensory Evaluation is very important in the food industry. It can be used for the following:

  • Measure and evaluate the shelf life of goods
  • Check the quality of goods being produced
  • Evaluate and develop a new product
  • Investigate a change in the recipe or the process
  • Compare your product and goods with that of a competitor’s

As you can see, sensory evaluation has numerous applications, all of which are very important. When deciding whether a certain food is delicious, we ultimately use our sense of taste, but other senses play a part in the “tasting” as well. The eyes evaluate the color, texture, and overall appearance of the food, thereby helping us decide if it is appealing or not. The nose takes in the aroma of the food. You know how when you have colds and you can barely taste the food you’re eating? Well, that is because our sense of smell and our sense of taste are closely related. The smell, texture, color, and the taste of the food are all taken into consideration. It’s not only food that needs evaluation. We also have Self Evaluation Forms, which are forms to help you evaluate your own performance and progress.

Your Sensory Evaluation Form would vary depending on what type of Sensory Evaluation you want to do. Here are the three types of Sensory Evaluation:

  • Analytical Testing: This is focused on making objective observations about the product. In this type of test, each taster is given a questionnaire that includes a list of descriptors, like the texture, acidity, bitterness, etc. of the product.
  • Affective Testing: This is also known as consumer testing. This focuses more on subjective observations about the product to evaluate consumer preference. This type of sensory evaluation highlights how well the product is likely to be accepted by the consumers. It includes asking each taster if they like or prefer a product or its taste.
  • Perception: This includes the biochemical and psychological aspects of tasting.

Development is always important whichever industry you are in. Sensory Evaluation is just one of the ways for companies in the food industry to develop their products. Just as products are evaluated, so too should employees be evaluated using Employee Evaluation Forms.
