EMS Taste & Test – Buffalo Wings Nutritional Results

The Nutritional Results for our Buffalo Wings

The results are in!

Our very first EMS Taste & Test was a hit – and we’ve already had our second (but more on that to follow shortly)! The sensory test for the Buffalo Wings was a great place to start; it gives the food provider (in this case, the MDs husband, Stuart) a better idea of a flavour profile, appearance feedback and an approximate price that tasters are willing to pay for the dish. All of this information can used to help product placement and provide verified information to customers on flavour and the tasting experience. We currently offer reports of this nature to major retailers such as Lidl, who use our reports to ensure products sold in their stores are as the producer intended and meet all mandatory labelling requirements.

Our Taste & Test would not be complete without a full run-down of the nutritional content. On the front of food products, you buy in a supermarket, you will see a ‘traffic light’ breakdown of nutritional information. This is a legal requirement.

Our Buffalo Wing results are below:

Buffalo wings may not be the healthiest option on the menu and if you are trying to limit your calorie intake or avoid saturated fats or salt, maybe keep them as a special treat! However, they are very high in protein and low in sugar, so if you’re looking to bulk up a bit, hit the gym and want a bite full of protein, these maybe the ideal post work out snack!

Fun fact! Why are Buffalo Wings called buffalo wings when there is no buffalo meat to be found?

It is generally agreed by historians that Buffalo wings were invented by an eating establishment called Anchor Bar in Buffalo NY USA —or rather, their owner Teressa Bellissimo did — the rest of the origin varies but a popular story is after being accidentally shipped wings instead of other chicken parts and, as such, the now famous snack was invented out of a desire not to waste perfectly good poultry.
