Reward Information

We greatly value your participation on taste test panels. As a token of our appreciation for doing these panels, we issue points to your reward account every time you come in for a panel. Points can be used to purchase e-gift cards of your choice.

Receiving Points

Taste Testing or Product Evaluations

Every time you come in for a taste test or do a product evaluation, you will get points added to your rewards account. You can check your balance of points at any time on the website.

PLEASE NOTE: Points will depend on many factors, such as: how many products you will taste, how many questions you will be expected to answer and whether it is a multiple day test, just to name a few.

Bring a friend program

This program gives you an opportunity to earn more points to put towards the reward of your choice.

If you have a friend, co-worker or family member that is at least 18 years old and who is interested in participating in taste tests, tell them to sign up at On the website, there is a question about how you heard about taste testing here at Solae. In the box provided, please have them type your name so we know you recruited them. After they sign up and complete orientation, you will receive 5 extra points.

Redeeming Your Points

Taste Testing or Product Evaluations

We go through a company called Tango Card to redeem your accumulated points in exchange for a variety of e-gift cards.

Points are deducted from your TasteOfSolae account each month for your rewards. At the time when we do our monthly process, if your account has points in increments fo 25, those points will be automatically deducted. When you looked up your participation and earnings, you will see what stage your account is in. (For example: processing or redeemed)

Processing means that your points (in 25 point increments) have been subtracted in order to start the reward process. Redeemed means that you should have received an email from Tango Card with a link that you will use to pick out the merchant of your choice from their website.

Gift Certificate Information

Tango Card has many e-gift cards to choose from, and contains many categories like restaurants, entertainment, and travel. You can also donate to certain charities as well.

The links that are sent to you with the reward amount, that you use to pick out the merchant, do not expire.
