I am making a questionnaire about food and one of things people can rate is the taste intensity or taste strength of a vegetable/fruit/nut etc. Right now i just call it taste intensity and people can rate it from 1 to 10. Strawberry has a very rich taste so i would probably give that a high taste intensity score whereas a cucumber tastes very watery so i would give it a low score.

So is there a term that describes 'taste intensity'?

Edit: This is my full rating survey.

  • "taste intensity". You really can't have a less awkward term that covers all the different tastes; better terms would need to be particular to the foodstuff. For example, sweentess, sourness, earthiness, etc. – FuzzyChef Jan 12 at 22:45
  • hi, i have other tastes people can rate. Please see the picture i've added. Its a survey for a gardener website i'm making – Maurice Jan 12 at 23:38
  • It possible that different people perceive the intensity of flavors differently. Your "rich tasting strawberry" might not taste so rich to me. What are you trying to learn by surveying gardeners? – moscafj Jan 13 at 23:55
  • yes but on average people will agree that a strawberry tastes less sour then an orange right? – Maurice Jan 15 at 16:46
  • also, its a opinion based survey, the whole idea is to give a representation of how sweet people rate a particular strawberry on average for example – Maurice Jan 15 at 17:14
