Taste Testers Sought for Uni Study

A University of Maine graduate student who is studying the effects of diet on the eating quality of fresh green sea urchin roe (uni) is seeking participants for a taste test that will take place Thursday, Oct. 16 in Hitchner Hall’s Sensory Evaluation Center.

Volunteers who evaluate all four samples will receive $10. Sessions last no longer than 30 minutes, and appointments are required.

Participants must be at least 18 years of age and eat uni at least twice a year. Those who do not eat uni; are allergic to uni, eggs or other seafood; or do not want to eat raw seafood are asked not to participate.
