Food With a Side of Science

As we continuously pursue our core value of serving only Highest Quality Food, we find that sometimes it's best to recalibrate our own senses in the test kitchen. That’s why this past month, we had a group work with us on the science of taste and sensory evaluation. We learned quite a bit during the course, including the fact that many people do not taste bitter flavors! Our food team tastes hundreds of products in the test kitchen each year, and it is important that we all speak the same language when evaluating. These types of continued education ensure that we provide the highest-quality products to our customers. It is very important to us that we stay on top of each ingredient in our system to make sure they do not change over time.
