In recent years, the jellyfish (JF) blooms in many coastal areas around the world, due to climate change, have pointed toward its possible exploitation as an alternative seafood product to support the global fishery sector. However, being a novel food in Western countries, there is a gap in knowledge on JF sensory properties. This research aims to develop a sensory lexicon for edible JF through a fast but reliable method, such as RATA. Sensory attributes collected from the literature were selected through RATA applied to five mildly processed JF. The lexicon selected was then validated on three JF samples, through descriptive analysis, to test its applicability and discrimination power. The results showed that RATA could be a reliable tool in the lexicon development of novel foods, such as JF. Moreover, the lexicon developed provides a valuable communication instrument, which will open new sensory research studies focusing on JF palatability.

Abstract

In recent years, the jellyfish (JF) blooms in many coastal areas around the world, due to climate change, have pointed toward its possible exploitation as an alternative seafood product to support the global fishery sector. However, being a novel food in Western countries, there is a gap in knowledge on JF sensory properties. This research aims to develop a sensory lexicon for edible JF through a fast but reliable method, such as RATA. Sensory attributes collected from the literature were selected through RATA applied to five mildly processed JF. The lexicon selected was then validated on three JF samples, through descriptive analysis, to test its applicability and discrimination power. The results showed that RATA could be a reliable tool in the lexicon development of novel foods, such as JF. Moreover, the lexicon developed provides a valuable communication instrument, which will open new sensory research studies focusing on JF palatability.
