Course Summary

If you can already tell sweetness from acidity and bitterness from saltiness and you fancy that you have a pretty well rounded palate, then the Sensory Intermediate course is for you.

Going into more detail than Sensory Foundation, the Sensory Intermediate course investigates not just the practical side of smelling and tasting but also the science of relevant disciplines such as sensory physiology and sensory psychology.

Throughout the two-day course you’ll develop the ability to run the triangle test and various other statistical analyses methods, as well as deepen your understanding of taste, texture, aromas and flavours.

The Sensory Intermediate course can be taken with or without SCA accreditation and is the second step in the SCA accredited Sensory module. This course can be used towards the SCA Diploma. You do not need to have completed the Sensory Foundation module in order to take this course, but it is recommended.
