Researchers in a food laboratory want to enhance a recipe for cheese fondue by improving the flavor, maximizing the amount that sticks to bread dipped into the fondue, and minimizing the amount that is burned at the bottom of the pot. The researchers design an extreme vertices mixture experiment to study the effects of the mixture blend and serving temperature.
You can use this data to demonstrate Analyze Mixture Design. You can use the data with the model to demonstrate mixture commands such as Response Trace Plot, Contour/Surface Plots, Overlaid Contour Plot, and Response Optimizer.

|StdOrder||The order of the runs in standard order (also called Yates order).|
|RunOrder||The order of the runs in random order.|
|PtType||The point type: 0 = center point, 1 = corner point, -1 = axial point.|
|Blocks||The blocks. In this design, all the design points are contained in a single block.|
|Emmenthaler||The amount of Emmenthaler cheese (component).|
|Gruyere||The amount of Gruyere cheese (component).|
|Broth||The amount of broth (component).|
|Temperature||The serving temperature of the mixture (process variable).|
|Flavor||The flavor rating (response).|
|Quantity||The quantity that sticks to bread dipped into the fondue (response).|
|Burned||The amount of the mixture that is burned at the bottom of the pot (response).|
