Supervisors: Professor Joanne Hort and a lecturer in Sensory Science
Subject Area: Sensory Science
Mouthfeel is very important in terms of consumer acceptance and liking but, although much research has focused on flavour perception, in contrast relatively little is understood about mouthfeel. The aim of this PhD is to begin to put in place the lexicon of terms and understanding needed in order to correlate key aspects of sensory perception, oral state and analytical measures. This will not only progress our understanding of mouthfeel perception at a fundamental level but provide insights for the development of acceptable products for the global consumer.
