On Tuesday night, groups in my Food Science & Technology class presented their final projects. For each item, students participated in a triangle taste test, attempting to identify their classmate’s product against two samples of the gold standard.

The projects presented included:
*Omega-3 Ginger Snaps
*La Lo-Yo (Low-Sugar Strawberry Yogurt)
*Salsa (Low-Salt Salsa)
*Reduced Sodium Tomato Sauce
*Low-Fat Alfredo Sauce
*Low-Sugar Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
*Vanilla Frozen Yogurt with Resveratrol
*Low-Fat Honey Mustard

The groups who came closest to matching the gold standard were the Frozen Yogurt, Salsa, and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

The tasting got pretty exhausting after a while, but it was really cool to see what my classmates had been working on all semester. Here are a few pictures from the night:
