|Abstract:||We evaluated the performance of check-all-that-apply (CATA) questions and intensity scales to describe Minas Frescal cheese and its reformulation based on consumers' perceptions. Ten commercial samples with different formulations (full-fat, low-fat, or low-lactose) were evaluated by 200 consumers divided equally into 2 groups: 1 evaluated samples and described their ideal cheese using intensity scales and 1 did the same using CATA questions. Both methodologies provided similar information about the sensory characteristics of the Minas Frescal cheeses, the description of the ideal product, and directions for product reformulation. The ideal Minas Frescal cheese was characterized by high moisture, intense white color, homogeneous mass, typical Minas Frescal cheese aroma and flavor, softness, and juiciness. For the intensity scales, the recommendation was to increase the typical aroma and flavor, salty taste, and juiciness, and to decrease the bitter flavor; for the CATA questions, only increasing the typical Minas Frescal cheese flavor was important for all classes of cheeses. Even for a heterogeneous product with no defined manufacturing protocol, both methodologies presented satisfactory results that should be considered for use by cheese producers and the dairy industry|
