Identification of drivers of (dis)liking based on dynamic sensory profiles: Comparison of Temporal Dominance of Sensations and Temporal Check-All-That-Apply

Mpfindlay_9j5a2s5k/ February 1, 2017/ Peer-reviewed Paper/ 0 comments

Temporal Dominance of Sensations (TDS) and Temporal Check-All-That-Apply (TCATA) are two multi-attribute methods for dynamic sensory characterization. Previous research has shown that both methodologies provide complementary information. However, it remains an open question which of the two approaches better explains consumers’ hedonic perception of products. In this context, the aim of the present work was to compare TDS and TCATA

Perception dynamics of grain-based ready-to-eat cereal products using TCATA

Mpfindlay_9j5a2s5k/ October 31, 2016/ Oral Presentation/ 0 comments

The breakdown of grain-based ready-to-eat cereals in the mouth occurs relatively quickly, but it is at this stage when the consumer experiences directly the sensory properties of the cereal. The feelings, tastes, flavors, and sounds elicited in mouth are not static. Rather, these sensations are perceived dynamically, and evolve within each bite, and over the multi-bite eating experience. Temporal check-all-that-apply

Temporal Check-All-That-Apply (TCATA): A novel dynamic method for characterizing products

Mpfindlay_9j5a2s5k/ January 17, 2016/ Peer-reviewed Paper/ 0 comments

Temporal Check-All-That-Apply (TCATA) is introduced as a new dynamic method for describing multidimensional sensory properties of products as they evolve over time. TCATA extends the Check-All-That-Apply (CATA) method. Selection and deselection of attributes are tracked continuously over time, permitting assessors to characterize the evolution of sensory changes in products. TCATA is presented using results from trained panel evaluations of yogurt

Comparison of TCATA and TDS for dynamic sensory characterization of food products

Mpfindlay_9j5a2s5k/ October 22, 2015/ Peer-reviewed Paper/ 0 comments

Temporal Check-All-That-Apply (TCATA) has been recently introduced as a method for temporal sensory product characterization. Building on the standard Check-All-That-Apply (CATA) question format, assessors select all the terms they consider applicable for describing the sensations they perceive, and they do so at each moment of the evaluation process.
