University of Maine researchers are seeking 50 volunteers to eat fresh Maine wild blueberries grown under four different types of agricultural practices, including organic.
The taste test takes place 3–5:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 31 in the Consumer Testing Center at 168 Hitchner Hall on the UMaine campus. Volunteers will receive $5 cash for participation in the 30-minute test.
Researchers are seeking volunteers to eat fresh blueberries at least twice a year. Eligible participants must be non-smokers who do not have blueberry allergies, a cold or other health conditions that affect sense of taste.
