The Deakin Sensory lab is located at the Melbourne campus of Deakin University, Australia. We are housed in the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences, within the Faculty of Health and consist of a team of researchers and students (PhD, Masters and Honours students) who are investigating various aspects of taste, flavour and acceptance of foods. We have state-on-the-art facilities for undertaking sensory research, descriptive analysis and consumer testing. Topics currently under investigation within the lab include bitter taste in foods, fat taste sensitivity, sweet and carbohydrate taste, irritation of oleocanthal (found in olive oil), compounds in strawberries that drive liking, and food compounds that stimulate satiety.
