Special Issue in Animals: Palatability of Pet Food
The sensory properties of foods are the most important reason people eat the foods they eat. What those properties are and how we best measure those properties are critical to understanding food and eating behaviour. Appearance, flavor, texture, and even the sounds of food can impart a desire to eat or cause us to dismiss the food as unappetizing, stale, or even inappropriate from a cultural standpoint. This Special Issue will focus on the sensory properties of various foods, how those properties are measured, which properties might be most important in certain situations, and how consumers use sensory attributes to make decisions about what they will eat. Both research papers and review articles are welcome in this Special Issue of Foods.
Prof. Dr. Edgar Chambers IV
