Our sensory expertise

Sensory expertise

Sensory science for your brands 

We develop and apply cutting-edge sensory methodology to ensure that our solutions in your foods and drinks meet consumer needs and expectations.

All in a day’s tasting

For the Tate & Lyle Sensory Group, a typical day at the office may be a sweet delight or leave a bitter taste! Our team of scientists – experts in experimental design and statistical analysis – explore perceptual maps and descriptive analysis charts, in pursuit of healthier foods that taste great.

Our sensory service

Our sensory service is essentially a one-stop shop, with every sensory evaluation technique available under one roof.  We can prepare samples in specially equipped kitchens in our innovation centres, and test them at computerised sensory stations,
in two-product or multiple comparison sets.
