Are you interested in helping with food tasting research? The BYU Sensory Lab is always looking for new panelists to come in for taste panels.
- To sign up in our database, you may click on the links below and you will be prompted to fill out a short survey.
- Once you are in the database, you may be periodically sent an email with a brief survey to see if you qualify for a particular panel.
- If you qualify for a panel, you will be able to set an appointment to come into the Sensory Lab. Participation in a panel will take approximately 15 minutes and you will be compensated $3 (or the amount specified during recruiting).
- You may voluntarily remove yourself from the database at any time.
We currently have two databases. You are welcome to sign up for both databases by clicking on the following links and filling out a short survey.
Regular Panels Database (sign-up)
Most of our panels deal with our Regular Panels Database. If you are in the Provo area and interested in participating in taste panels, please fill out this survey to be added to our database. Once you are in our database, we will periodically send you an email invitation to take a survey for an upcoming taste panel. If you qualify for a panel, you will be able to schedule an appointment to come to our lab, usually for about 15 minutes, to taste food samples and answer questions. Those who participate in the taste panel typically receive $3 for their time.
Thank you for signing up!
Children's Panels Database (sign-up)
If you are in the Provo area and interested in having your 7 - 17 year old child(ren) participate in taste panels, please fill out this survey to be added to our database. Once you are in our database, we will occasionally send you an email invitation to take a survey for upcoming children's taste panel. If you and/or your child(ren) qualifies for a panel, you will be able to schedule an appointment to come to our lab. Taste panels are usually about 15 minutes though occasionally we have hour long focus groups. Compensation for children panels are typically $10 per person. Sometimes we need parent and child pairs and sometimes we only need children.
We hope to see you here!
