The modification of beverage sensory characteristics is a continuous goal of the food industry to meet consumer demand and increase the commercial success of new products. This pursuit gathers researchers from a wide diversity of fields, such as food chemistry, microbiology, sensory science, consumer research, and marketing. Processing technologies are also involved because novel products may require the development of new processes. Attention should also be called to sensory modifications induced by unwanted spoilage events and health issues of improved products. For this Special Issue on “Beverage Sensory Modification”, we would like to invite submissions that show what is being currently performed to improve flavor, taste and mouthfeel properties of beverages and to prevent their spoilage.
Original research and review papers are welcome under the following examples:
- Flavor, taste and mouthfeel enhancement
- Cross-modal sensory interactions
- Sensory drivers of beverage preference and liking
- The role of consumer segmentation on beverage choices
- Consumer reaction to new products (neophobia)
- Development of new tasting methodologies
- Prevention of chemical and microbiological spoilage
- Health implications of beverage formulations
- Marketing strategies of novel products
