Enjoy the sound of food

Feb 12, 2016: In a study published in the journal Flavour, Charles Spence, a professor at Oxford University, reviewed a research on the interrelation between food flavor and sound. He concluded that sound is a very important experience in eating. There is a remarkable effect as food sound totally changes the experience of our eating.

According to Spence, sound effect overlaps our flavor senses. This is due to the fact that our brain always attempts to get connections with the surroundings. Individuals do utilize sounds in order to access the taste of food unknowingly. People assess the taste of the food using the word ?crisp?, a sound effect that clearly indicates the importance of sound in our foods.

Another study by the University of Leeds pointed out that people like bacon?s texture and the crunching sound more than its taste and smell.

It has also been proved that by changing the sound that a food makes can influence a person?s perception about it. Spence showed that people prefer carbonated beverages more when they hear the sound of the bubbles popping.
