Tasters Needed for Sensory Study!
Greetings from the sensory team at UCD!
We are conducting an exciting and fun project on spicy chicken and spicy fried rice. We are looking for 90 participants, either male or female, to come and taste our samples. The chicken and rice dishes will be served on two separate days. The spicy chicken will be evaluated on Monday, 4/22 and in the morning of Tuesday, 4/23, and the fried rice in the afternoon on Tuesday, 4/23 and Wednesday, 4/24.
In order to qualify for this study, you should be:
– Male or female
– Between 20 and 60 years old
– Of NON-Asian descent
– And able to participate in BOTH sessions during the week of April 22
– If you are not a US citizen, you need to have lived in the US for at least for 5 years
During the session you will be asked to taste a variety of samples of chicken and fried rice, and you will need to indicate how much you like each of them. Some of the samples contain spices and seasonings that might make them hot and spicy. You will also be asked questions regarding your eating habits and preferences. All your answers will be kept confidential.
If you are interested in taking part in this study, please fill out the questionnaire here:
Your information will be reviewed to see if you qualify. We will contact you, and if you qualify, you will be assigned to a participation slot. If you do not hear from us for some reason, please feel free to contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 530 754-4147.
