The Test Kitchen and Sensory Evaluation Labs are specially designed for testing new products and ingredients for functional and sensory properties. The test kitchen has three food preparation areas and a variety of cooking and baking equipment including mixers, fryers, ovens, and other food preparation equipment.
Connected to the test kitchen are two areas for sensory evaluation. The 24 individual sensory evaluation booths feature color and light controls and sliding doors for passing samples through to isolated panelists. A large focus group evaluation room accommodates up to 16 people and also features color and light controls.
