This International Standard gives guidelines for the overall process for establishing a sensory profile. Sensory profiles can be established for all products or samples which can be evaluated by the senses of sight, odour, taste, touch, or hearing (e.g. food, beverage, tobacco product, cosmetic, textile, paper, packaging, sample of air or water). This International Standard can also be useful in studies of human cognition and behaviour.Some applications of sensory profiling are as follows:— to develop or change a product;— to define a product, production standard, or trading standard in terms of its sensory attributes;— to define a reference “fresh” product for shelf-life testing;— to study and improve shelf-life of a product;— to compare a product with a reference product or with other similar products on the market or under development;— to map a product’s perceived attributes for the purpose of relating them to factors such as instrumental, chemical or physical properties, and/or to consumer acceptability;— to characterize by type and intensity the off-odours or off-tastes in a sample (e.g. in pollution studies).
