Abstract: It is difficult to describe and accurately quantify the taste of food. The analysis of taste mechanism can help establish a comprehensive and multi-dimensional standard for tasting and quantifing it. The development of an instrument for accurate analysis of taste can avoid various disadvantages brought by artificial seasoning, such as high cost, low efficiency, and large deviation. Besides, the standard flavor material can be applied to more accurately copy the taste.

Key words: taste; analysis; quantification
