Abstract. Instrumental taste measurement is in the center of attention both for sensory experts and sensor developers. However, the measurement of sweetness in a hard task. Our work reported here presents the measurability of glucose with an electronic taste analyzer. Our results showed that the system is sensitive for pure glucose but in a very “un-monotonic” way. However in the presence of other components a monotonic change in some sensor signals could be observed. Our opinion is that these sensors are not measuring the glucose itself but a kind of masking effect covering the other components.
