We evaluated the sensory characteristics of Gangjung base obtained from various manufacturers, using a sensory descriptive analysis. Significant differences were observed for all sensory attributes of Gangjung samples with the exception of ‘toothpacking’. Sample A showed high intensities for ‘external color’, ‘external roughness’, ‘sweetness’, ‘toasted soybean powder flavor’, ‘crispness’, ‘fracturability’, ‘oiliness’, and ‘loose particles,’ whereas it had low intensities for ‘rice flour flavor’,‘hardness’, and ‘toughness’ compared to those of other samples. Sample B had more ‘sourness’, ‘butyric acid flavor’,‘fermented rice flavor’, and ‘degree of melting’ but lower ‘air cell size’, ‘fracturability’, and ‘flake roughness’. Sample C showed high intensities for ‘expansion’, ‘hardness’, ‘crispness’, and ‘flake roughness’, whereas sample D showed low intensities for ‘expansion’ and ‘sourness’. These results indicate that Gangjung base samples are markedly different depending on the manufacturer.
