Scope

This international Standard describes a set of objective tests for familiarizing assessors with sensory analysis.
The test methods described can be useful
a) to teach assessors to recognize tastes and to distinguish between them (see clause 8)
b) to teach assessors to know and to differentiate amongst different types of threshold (see clause 9)
c) to make assessors aware of their own sensitivity of taste, and
d) to enable test supervisors to carry out a preliminary categorization of assessors.
The methods can also be used as a periodic monitor of the sensitivity of taste of assessors who are already
members of sensory analysis panels.
