Introduction The taint test is valid for evaluation of whether the material to be tested may bring about a change in the taste (flavour) of the food to be in contact with the material. The test serves for evaluating the possible off-flavour transmitted from a paper and board intended for food packaging or otherwise to come into contact with foodstuffs. According to the results conclusions may be drawn as to the suitability of the material tested for packaging of foodstuffs. For evaluation of the test substance three alternative testing procedures are described: a) the triangle test; b) the extended triangle test; c) the multicomparison test. It is recommended to use the triangle test when rating of the intensity of taint is not needed. This test is less affected by the presence of atypical data than the multicomparison test. The multicomparison test may be preferred when a large number of samples are to be tested, as this procedure is less time consuming compared to the triangle tests. It is also the most common sensory test applied for evaluation of paper and board. The method is statistically less efficient than the triangle test. NOTE The triangle and the extended triangle tests are described in detail in ISO 5492. The multicomparison test is not described in any ISO Standard. In order to give reliable results this test should be performed by selected assessors. The result may be influenced by the time elapsed between manufacturing and testing as well as by the storage conditions of the paper or board. "Part 1: Odour" comprises the corresponding method for the estimation of odour originating from paper or board intended for food contact. SIST EN 1230-2:2010

1 Scope This European Standard specifies whether a paper or board sample contains substances which may be trans-mitted through the air space to a test substance and affect its taste. It is applicable to all kinds of paper and board, including coated and printed material, intended to come into contact with foodstuffs. It is not applicable for the determination of consumers' preference. 2 Normative references The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies. EN ISO 186:2002, Paper and board — Sampling to determine average quality (ISO 186:2002) 3 Terms and definitions For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply. 3.1 taste sensations perceived by the taste organ when stimulated by certain soluble substances

[ISO 5492:2008] 3.2 flavour complex combination of the olfactory, gustatory and trigeminal sensations perceived during tasting NOTE The flavour may be influenced by tactile, thermal, painful and/or kinaesthesic effects. [ISO 5492] 3.3 taint taste or odour foreign to the product

[ISO 5492:2008] 3.4 off-flavour atypical flavour often associated with deterioration or transformation of the product

[ISO 5492:2008] NOTE For simplicity, taste and flavour are used as synonyms in this European Standard, though this is not exactly in accordance with ISO 5492. The same regards taint and off-flavour. 3.5 sample the aggregate of all the specimens taken from the lot to provide information on the average quality of the lot and possibly serve as a basis for a decision on the lot

EN 1230-2:2009 (E) 6 3.6 test piece the piece or pieces of paper or board on which the measurement is carried out in accordance with the stipulations of the methods of test NOTE The test piece is generally taken from a specimen; in some instances the test piece may be the specimen itself, or several specimens. [EN ISO 186] 3.7 test substance foodstuff intended to be packed, or a suitable test food product 3.8 test portion portion of the test sample which is directly tested by the assessor

[ISO 5492:2008] 3.8.1 test portion for analysis the quantity of test substance which has been stored along with the test pieces 3.8.2 test portion for control the quantity of test substance which has been stored in the same way but without test piece 3.9 assessor any person taking part in a sensory test

[ISO 5492:2008] 3.10 selected assessor assessor chosen for his/her ability to perform a sensory test

[ISO 5492:2008] 3.11 triangle test method of difference testing involving the simultaneous presentation of three coded samples, two of which are identical NOTE The assessor is asked to select the sample perceived as different. [ISO 5492] 3.12 extended triangle test triangle test where one portion is a test portion for analysis, and two are test portions for control NOTE The assessor is asked to give a rating of the sample which he/she finds odd. 3.13 multicomparison test test where the assessor is asked to give a rating of the intensity of the difference in taste between test portions for analysis and a known test portion for control SIST EN 1230-2:2010

EN 1230-2:2009 (E) 7 4 Principle Test pieces of the material to be examined are stored in glass jars together with the test substance for 44 h to 48 h at (23 ± 2) °C at specified humidity, in the dark. The selected humidity (as given in 5.2 or 5.3)
