Molecular Gastronomy: The Science of Flavor
- Type: Archived Webinar
What gives food its flavor? What makes some foods taste really good while others can be mediocre or even disgusting? How far can
In this webinar, Professor Peter Barham addresses these and other questions. For example, he illustrates how we use all our senses to assess the food we eat: We use our eyes to see the color, shape and size; our ears to hear any sounds like sizzling or crackling; our hands to feel the texture; our tongues to sense the taste; our noses to sense the aroma; and all the nerves in our mouths to assess the “mouthfeel.” In practice, we integrate all these sensations into what we call the “flavor” and then decide whether or not we like it.
People working in any area of chemistry will find something to interest them and pique their curiosity – people working in the food industry will find much to surprise and delight them.
