Audience: Consumers and Professionals
Description: Healthy Aging: How Changes in Sensory Physiology,
Sensory Psychology and Socio-Cognitive Factors Influence Food Choice.
A Project in Sensory Science funded through the Fifth Framework
Programme of the European Commission involving over 70 scientists of
varying disciplines. The overall objective of HealthSense is to bring
together Nutritionists, Food Technologists, Food Chemists, Sensory Scientists,
Psychologists and Statisticians to provide Voice-of-the-Older-Consumer
information which enables policy makers, R & D and consumer groups
who support the elderly to provide foods appreciated by older people.
