Volunteers needed for bison meat study

January 8, 2018 — 

We are recruiting volunteers to participate in a research study on the acceptability of fresh bison steaks treated with oregano and rosemary essential oils.

Approximately 120 participants will take part in one 30-45-minute session in an individual booth. You can sign up for any single session being held on the dates and times as follows:

  • On a Tuesday January 23th at 12:30 pm, 1:30 pm or 2:30 pm
  • On a Wednesday January 24th at 12:30 pm, 1:30 pm or 2:30 pm
  • On a Thursday January 25th at 12:30 pm, 1:30 pm or 2:30 pm

A $ 10 gift card from the University of Manitoba Bookstore will be given to each participant as honorarium. Panelists can withdraw from the study at any point prior to receiving their gift card, by notifying the researchers by e-mail, telephone or in person. To all those that have started the study, a $10 gift card will be given at the completion of the one-time sensory session irrespective of their level of participation.

The study will take place in the Sensory Lab at the Food Science Building.

If you have any allergies to any food product, you will not be allowed to participate in the study due to the potential risk involved.

If you are interested in helping us with this research notify Vipasha Sood at +1 204-951-5018 or soodv [at] myumanitoba [dot] ca to schedule a time to attend the session. Please complete the consent form and e-mail back before the session to confirm your attendance.
