Abstract Electronic tongues have been identified as useful tools for quantifying the taste of food and beverages. However, the bitterness evaluation of coffee in the presence of high-potency sweeteners has not been performed yet. In this study, we investigated an approach to quantify the bitterness of coffee with different roasting degrees and the sweetness of acesulfame potassium (Ace K) added to the coffee using taste sensors with lipid polymer membranes. A formula for predicting coffee bitterness with the addition of Ace K was proposed using the responses of a bitterness sensor and a sweetness sensor. We found that the predicted coffee bitterness showed a good correlation with human taste.

Abstract 鈥淏itter鈥 and 鈥渟weet鈥 are frequently framed in opposition, both functionally and metaphorically, in regard to affective responses, emotion, and nutrition. This oppositional relationship is complicated by the fact that some molecules are simultaneously bitter and sweet. In some cases, a small chemical modification, or a chirality switch, flips the taste from sweet to bitter. Molecules humans describe as bitter are recognized by a 25-member subfamily of class A G-protein coupled receptors ...

Abstract Product sensory information, an external cue, could greatly influence consumer enjoyment of hedonic products like coffee. The question is what type of sensory information, subjective (e.g., aroma, flavor and body) or objective (e.g., origin, varieties and production practices), has a higher impact on consumer product experience accounting for heterogeneous taste sensitivity. We examine this question using a between-subject experiment where participants were either given subjective, obje...

Abstract The demand for high quality and specialty coffee is increasing worldwide. In order to meet these demands, a more uniform and standardized quality assessment of coffee is essential. The aim of this study was to make a sensory scientific and chemical characterization of common roasting defects in coffee, and to investigate their potential relevance for consumers鈥 acceptance of coffee. To this end, six time-temperature roasting profiles based on a single origin Arabica bean were developed:...

Abstract Paralytic shellfish toxins (PSTs) are monitored in commercial bivalves in several countries in the world due to their toxicity to human consumers. The present work examines the application of an electronic tongue based on potentiometric chemical sensors to the quantification of PSTs in mussel extracts. The electronic tongue comprised six miniaturized sensors with solid inner contact and plasticized polyvinylchloride membranes. Calibration models were calculated by PLS regression using m...

Abstract This paper presents the design, fabrication, and implementation of low-cost taste sensors. A single-step procedure was performed using commercial polymer films to develop laser-induced graphene which was used as electrodes in sensor patches for taste sensing purposes. The cost of these sensor patches is less than two dollars based on the requirement for low-cost polymer films and Kapton tapes for developing the sensor patches. Five different chemicals corresponding to the five fundament...

A sensitive capsaicin sensor was constructed based on a poly(sodium 4-styrenesulfonate) functionalized graphite modified screen printed electrode (PSS-Grp/SPE) in this study. The PSS-Grp and poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride) functionalized graphite (PDDA-Grp) were easily synthesized by interacting Grp with PSS and PDDA through sonication, and resulted in negative and with positive charges on the surface, respectively. The prepared PSS-Grp and PDDA-Grp were characterized by scanning electron...

High-potency sweeteners are applied to low-calorie diets and bitterness-masking ingredients in pharmaceutical products. We have studied taste sensors with lipid polymer membranes based on potentiometric measurement system for high-potency sweeteners. However, the sensor also responds to astringency substances because of hydrophobic characteristics of the lipid polymer membrane. In this study, we developed a new taste sensor using a lipid polymer membrane for saccharin sodium and acesulfame potas...

Abstract Organophosphate (OP) compounds impose significant strains on public health, environmental/food safety and homeland security, once they have been widely used as pesticides and insecticides and also display potential to be employed as chemical warfare agents by terrorists. In this context, the development of sensitive and reliable chemical sensors that would allow in-situ measurements of such contaminants is highly pursued. Here we report on a free-enzyme impedimetric electronic tongue (e...
