MSU taste panels seek input on pork products
MISSISSIPPI STATE – Taste panels seeking consumer opinions about pork products will be held Nov. 9 and 10 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Mississippi State University.
Graduate students in the Department of Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion will conduct the taste test on Italian pork sausage on Wednesday and pork burger on Thursday at the James E. Garrison Sensory Evaluation Laboratory in the Herzer Building.
Sixty adult volunteers are needed to evaluate the products on appearance, aroma, texture, taste and overall acceptability to determine which variants in the products are preferred by consumers. Students, faculty, staff and members of the public are invited to participate.
Participants will receive a free drink and snack for their service.
