Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) is a statistical technique used in a number of chemical areas including the food industry. This handbook is a highly readable guide to the uses of the very important technique of ANOVA applied to sensory analysis. It is unique in stressing the practical implications of the topic rather than the theoretical background. This is important since ANOVA is a complex statistical technique which can be misunderstood and misused by sensory analysts. Typical problems from sensory analysis are used as examples.
