Go Functional® has a specially trained human team for conducting numerous sensory analyses for many different purposes, such as:

Product development:

Profile analysis: A serie of selected parameters are established to accurately describe a particular product. These descriptors are quantified to stablish comparisons between prototypes and if necessary with the competitors. This tool is particularly useful in the development of functional foods for monitoring the appearance of unwanted flavours/aromas by analysing the different samples throughout their shelf life expectancy and/or in different conditions of preservation.
Analysis of preferences: the preferences between samples are analysed, therefore it is especially useful for assessing possible acceptance of a product in the market.

Competitive Analysis: In this case, an analysis of preferences is also conducted.

Validation of processes, approval of raw materials… by the identification of any differences or similarities between prototypes.
