Sensory Testing

Organoleptic analysis

The human senses are a true gift, and at GALAB, we combine them with our professional trained test subjects, resulting in the sensory analysis of products. Our professionals examine the food with all their senses to describe an overall picture in terms of appearance, smell, taste and consistency. This is truely essential for assessing quality. Please contact us. We are happy to help.

Triangular Test (TT)

The detection of sensory deviations in a direct product comparison is carried out in a so-called triangular test(TT). It is used to identify general and unknown product differences. These can arise from changing the ingredients, processing and treatment. At the same time, the triangle test serves to control a product adjustment or to check whether a new overall impression is created without individual attributes changing. The triangle test uses three samples, two of which are the same. The tst subjects must then recognize and label the different sample. The results of all examiners are statistically evaluated. The difference between the different samples is then rated as “significant”, “highly significant” or “very highly significant”.

Oils in sensors

The sensory testing of oils is a particular challenge. Trained test subjects, also known collectively as panels, assess the quality of olive and rapeseed oils. To assess the quality and quality classes of olive oils, the sensory test is an integral part in accordance with Regulation (EEC) No. 2568/91. The sensor system also decides whether a virgin olive oil can carry the additive “extra” or not.
