The effect of textural modifications of solid milk gels on in vivo aroma release and aroma perception was investigated with a panel of 14 subjects. Great inter-individual differences were observed on aroma-release data, and the consequences of these differences on aroma perception were studied. From a hierarchical cluster analysis performed with several parameters extracted from release curves, the subjects were gathered into two groups, and a specific aroma-release profile was identified for each one. Then, by using a sensory profile, we showed that the intensity of the aroma perception was dependent on the release profile presented by the panelist. Second, we observed that, during the chewing phase, the aroma was perceived as more intense for the firmer gel and for panelists for whom the aroma release begins during the chewing of the product.
