Webinar: Conducting a Cooking Validation Study

During this webinar, Nestle Quality Assurance Center's Takeisha Hankins and Brian Schaefer discussed a laboratory perspective on building confidence in your not ready to eat products’ cooking validation. Although the ultimate objective of a cooking validation is to ensure a food safe cook, key sensory attributes also need to be taken into consideration to ensure consumer delight. Hankins and Schaefer dug into how to set proper success criteria, how to choose reflective consumer cook equipment, and how to ensure accurate reproducible data. If conducted properly you can ensure consumers will have a consistent and food safe product to enjoy.
