Welcome to the Sensory Evaluation Center!

When you think of sensory testing, what first comes to mind? Is it tasting food products, testing in the booths, and answering questionnaires? Or perhaps evaluating concepts, listening to focus groups, or the ever-popular triangle test? Whatever it may be, the Sensory Evaluation Center at The Ohio State University is your one-stop shop for sensory and consumer testing needs. 

We want to take your ordinary experience with sensory and consumer testing and enhance it by:

  • Understanding your individual needs and tailoring specific experimental designs to meet them

  • Providing access to new approaches being pioneered in our research program

  • Making actionable recommendations to help with difficult go/no-go decisions and milestones 

  • And above all else, being customer-centric to make your experience with us a positive one
