    Abstract

    The Spectrum Descriptive Analysis Method consists of a complete, detailed, and accurate descriptive characterization of a product's sensory attributes. This characterization provides information on the perceived sensory attributes (characters or notes) and the levels or intensities of each. The perceived intensities are recorded in relation to absolute or universal scales, which allow the comparison of relative intensities among attributes within a product and among products tested.
