Learning objectives

The course has the following main objectives:
- development of methodological skills for the analytical evaluation of the organolpetic profile of food; integration of analytical and sensorial data; critical discussion of integrated data
- development of a basic knowledge on multifactorial perception of food
- methodologies in data analysis and visualization, related to sensorial aspects
- discussion of the main parameters affecting the sensorial perception, and its measurement.

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge of food chemistry and taste/flavour compounds

Course unit content

The course will provide an innovative support to the sensorial and
organoleptic assessment of food products, with a focus on molecular gastronomy. In particular, the course will explore the most advanced integrated approaches of sensorial and chemical analysis, based on statistical-chemiometric methodologies, and open source database. The information achieved will be used for a critical evaluation of selected case-studies, and used to better understand the sensorial innovation in food design.
