Beverage coloring and tasteFeatured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

The hypothesis that most people’s perception of taste will be based on the color of the beverage, is proven to be true.

Food and beverage manufacturers are fully aware that the color of the food will influence a consumer's perception of taste. This is the reason why they put in a lot of effort to find the perfect color and texture for their food products.

Also consider

This science fair project may be repeated, this time, using a bigger group of people to do the sampling.

Modify the science project experiment, using different types of juice but all of them with the same colored food dye.
