About the Webinar

Join us for an exploration of the similarities and differences among non-food and food sensory. This presentation considers what’s included in the ‘beyond-food’ world, reviews current (ASTM) methods, compares & contrasts testing approaches, and presents case studies.  A hands-on group exercise (after the webinar), illustrates some of the considerations needed. This is an SSP & ASTM partnership, an ‘encore’ presentation of some of the material presented at the April meeting. This is the first in a series of interactive presentations and discussions relevant to everyone active in the Sensory community.



Mike McGinley, Laboratory Director, St. Croix Sensory
Lee Stapleton, Director of Training and Education, Sensory Spectrum
Bethia Margoshes, Ph.D., Principal Consultant, Margoshes-Miller Consulting

The session will last about 90 minutes.
