Sensory descriptive analysis of yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis Saint Hilaire), a South American beverage



Sensory descriptive analysis of yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis Saint Hilaire), a South American beverage



Food Science and Technology International 8(1): 25-31



Yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis Saint Hilaire) is a plant native from South America, consumed traditionally as an infusion called mate. The objectives of this work were to develop sensory descriptors and references for the sensory analysis of the product and generate a sensory profile of 9 Argentine commercial samples from different brands. Eleven descriptors were developed for appearance, 8 for aroma and 11 for flavour.
