Empathic Food Testing describes the measurement of emotional and bodily sensations induced by food. These impacts differ from short sensory impressions and personal preferences.
We developed a method that scientifically evaluates the emotional and physical impacts of food on the body. We think the emotional properties of the products strongly influence our well-being and performance.
Empathic awareness or mindfulness supports the observation of food-induced emotions. That is why we named our test EmpathicFoodTest.
Choosing food-production methods and the kinds of foods we eat can make a big difference on quality of life. Empathic food testing, as a compliant method for quality evaluation of food, creates transparency and makes optimization of production, purchase, and consumption possible.
Our company analyses the emotional impact of food on the body using trained observers or untrained consumers.
