Therefore, it is necessary to sensorially evaluate common, light and herbal salt, as to acceptance, choosing for this two statistical tools, internal preference maps and mixed models. Thus, for the sensory analysis, acceptability tests were applied for the aspects of general appearance, color, aroma and flavor, with 120 evaluators (60 men and 60 women). Thus, it was concluded that, in general, common salt had greater acceptability in all attributes, followed by light salt, which in many aspects was well accepted by evaluators. Herbal salt was the least accepted product in most sensory attributes. Still for both statistical instruments, the only attribute that showed a difference in the acceptance of evaluators according to gender was the general appearance. Still, a difference was noticed between the results obtained for the preference maps and the mixed model for the attributes: general appearance, color and flavor.
