How air travel alters our sense of taste

Natural Health News – If you are planning to travel somewhere over the moat summer soda and other sweet drinks and plan to drink some tomato juice instead.

While examining how aircraft noise affects the palate, food scientists at Cornell University have discovered that in noisy situations – like the 85 decibels on board a passenger plane -. Umami rich foods become better yolks your taste buds

Our sense of taste does not begin and end in our taste buds; our external environment can significantly change the way we perceive the flavors.

“Our study confirmed that in a loud environment, our sense of taste is compromised. Interestingly, this was specific to the sweet taste and umami, sweet flavor and umami taste inhibited significantly higher,” said Robin Dando , lead researcher and assistant professor of food science.

“The multi-sensory properties of the environment in which we consume our food can alter our perception of the food we eat.”

external environment affects the taste

Taste perception not begin and end with your palate but actually is a multisensory interaction between food or drink itself, but also on the sensory attributes of the environment in which the food is consumed, scientists say.

Airlines recognize the phenomenon. German airline Lufthansa has found that passengers were consuming as much tomato juice as beer. The airline manager a private study published last year showed that the cabin pressure improves the taste of tomato juice.

The paper describes the physiological effect starting on a plane (low air pressure, low humidity, high levels of noise and vibration), like a cold – nothing quite the same taste. To compensate airline food needs more seasoning to make it palatable.
