PROJECT LAUNCH
We're starting a new project today.

Tasting Panel
We'll sample 3 drinks by Naked and give them a "taste score" using the tasting score card (attached).  This is the same process we'll use to measure your drinks.

Which is the Healthiest (Part 1)? (attached)
Now you know which one tastes the best.  But which one is the healthiest?  Look at the nutrition facts and we'll have a debate.  Note: the answer isn't obvious and depends on how you define "healthy".

Which is the Healthiest (Part 2)? 
As we saw above, defining "healthy" isn't obvious - so for this project we're going to create a metric called APMV (average percent meal value).  The closer the APMV is to 100% the "healthier" the drink is.  Using this definition, complete the attached activity and tell me which drink is the healthiest.  

Make Your Own
Now we're going to experiment making our own drink.  We'll judge the taste and then calculate the APMV.  You'll need:
- Product Testing Sheet (attached)
- Product Testing Sheet Directions (attached)
- APMV Calculator (attached)

HOMEWORK
Bring in 3 food items you want to put in a drink tomorrow.
PRODUCT TESTING
Today you'll make your own drink.  The goal is for you to learn the process and the method we'll use to collect data, measure taste, and calculate "healthiness".  

Use the "Product Testing Sheet" (attached)


HOMEWORK
Bring in 3 DIFFERENT food items.  

Food items must have either (1) Nutrition Facts or (2) be located on the USDA Nutrient Database.

PRODUCT TESTING 
Please complete another Product Testing Sheet for a new drink.

About APMV (Part 1)
How is the APMV calculated and what does it mean.

ABOUT TPMV (Part 2)
Why is the maximum TPMV 1100%

Using the new 100% max PMV standard, please recalculate the TPMVs for the drinks you have made thus far.  Post your highest value on the whiteboard.  

Prepare for tomorrow Mini -exhibition
Decide on a recipe for your drink.  You'll have the first hour of class tomorrow to make it.  
You need to present (1) a drink, and (2) the Nutrition Fact completely filled out for the beverage.



Exhibition Nutrition Facts Template
(attached)
Must be completely and accurately filled out for the drink you will be making tomorrow.  Due beginning of class Friday.  You will NOT have time in class tomorrow to do this.   

Mini Exhibition

(Hour 1)  Setup

(Hour 2) Exhibition, one member of your team will be at your booth the other will roam.  Roamers will sample and critique the other products.  Then we'll switch. 

As you roam please fill out the "Mini-Exhibition Critique" worksheet (attached)

When you are at your booth, please encourage people to fill out the "Mini-Exhibition Feedback Sheets" (attached)

HOMEWORK
Identify 3 nutrients from your drink that have the lowest PMV.  Now identify 3 foods that are high in these nutrients.  We'll plan on using those next week.
