This product has been archived, and is no longer available for purchase.


Flavor profile analysis (FPA) is a technique for identifying sample taste(s) and odor(s). FPA differs from threshold odor number because the sample is not diluted and each taste or odor attribute is individually characterized and assigned its own intensity rating. The single intensity rating obtained in measuring threshold odor is controlled by the most readily perceived odorant or mixture. FPA has been applied to drinking water sources, finished drinking water, and sampling points within the drinking water treatment train. A panel of at least four panelists is required to do the test. Apparatus must be used exclusively for the FPA. A table lists qualitative odor references, giving the compound, its stock concentration and preparation, test concentration, and descriptor. The method describes the apparatus required, room conditions, training of panelists, and the techniques used by panelists to test for flavor.
