Consumers (70 members) evaluated commercial plain yogurt for acceptance on the Zagreb market. Objectives included determination of consumers' panel responses for overall liking, appearance, consistency, sweetness and sourness using a nine-point hedonic scale. Consumers' responses for overall liking were correlated with other attribute ratings. The data were analyzed statistically. Consumer hedonic scores for overall liking varied from 6.7 to 7.8. Samples were significantly different (P= 0.05). Appearance liking ranged from 6.6 to 7.6; consistency varied from 6.4 to 8.0. Sweetness and sourness showed values from. 6.1-7.6 and 6.5-7.5 respectively. Hedonic ratings for consistency, sweetness and sourness positively correlated with overall liking. Overall liking showed the lowest correlation with appearance liking. The results of hedonic scale showed high consumer acceptability for all samples (ranged from 88.6 to 100.0%).
