E3S PDO WG Webinar – Why European guidelines to sensory analysis for PDOs?

E3S 10th Anniversary Series

Organised by the E3S PDO Working Group

13th July 2021, 16.00 – 17.15 CETRegister now

Sensory evaluation to establish compliance of PDO products in relation with the sensory description in their official specification is a legal requirement for certification according to EU Reg. 1151/2012. Standard methods do not exist, and there are only a few scientific contributions in this area, which makes the task difficult. The purpose of this webinar is to present a recent E3S publication for the development of methods for «Official sensory control» of PDO food products and wines. The guidelines is the result of a cooperation, with contributions from many members from the European Sensory Science Society (E3S) national organisations, in conjunction with experts from the European Accreditation organisation (EA), and all with experience in sensory analysis methods applied to PDO products.
