Many think of sensory testing primarily as a research tool. It is widely used in product development, to match products with competition, to determine consumer acceptance, to improve products, and to conduct shelf life studies (storage stability). But sensory testing and evaluations are used more routinely for quality control functions such as raw material control, evaluation of new sources for raw material, process control (at every step of the process), evaluation of process change, product grading, and multi-plant quality coordination.
