# soup

##### Discrimination study of packet soup

The `soup`

data frame has 1847 rows and 13 variables. 185
respondents participated in an A-not A discrimination test with
sureness. Before experimentation the respondents were familiarized
with the reference product and during experimentation, the respondents
were asked to rate samples on an ordered scale with six categories
given by combinations of (reference, not reference) and (sure, not
sure, guess) from 'referene, sure' = 1 to 'not reference, sure' = 6.
