dc.description.abstract The objective of this study was to compare acceptance of different flavor combinations across countries, determine consumer clusters across countries and identify drivers of liking for a healthy product (pomegranate juice). Five pomegranate juices varying in flavor character were evaluated by consumers in Estonia, Spain, Thailand, and the United States. In this study the consumers evaluated overall acceptability and flavor, sweet, sour, fruity, and pomegranate flavor liking. Also, Just About Right (JAR) questions were answered for those same attributes. The results suggested that although some samples varied in their liking across countries, larger differences in acceptance were found between consumer clusters across countries. These data suggest that individual consumer variation is greater than country specific variation. In addition, factors such as taste sensitivity or prior exposure rather than flavor are important in acceptability of pomegranate juices. en_US
