The quality of foods has always been very important to consumers, but with increased competition, quality has become even more important to consumers. Dr. Sims’ research  focuses on the quality characteristics of foods. The main area of emphasis has been on factors that influence the sensory characteristics and consumer acceptability of these products. This research involves a lot of joint research projects with other faculty in IFAS and with private food companies and growers.
