There are several reasons why I taste every day, whenever possible.
First, because it was a part of my initial training. L. Strasburger, my first mentor, tasted two ingredients every day, and managed to taste every approved ingredient once every two years, and every newly approved ingredient as they became available. He stressed that added flavor experience lets one see additional potential applications for any flavor ingredient.
