Creating The Perfect Sound To Enhance Eating
A new study explores how unpleasant sound can decrease the sensitivity of a person's palate, and looks at ways to mitigate such noise pollution.
According to a new research published in the Food Quality and Preference Journal, extremely loud background noise can make food taste bland. This is because a high level of unpleasant sound decreases the sensitivity of a person’s palate and this makes food less appealing to him than it is. Perhaps this explains why airlines often receive bland meals as one of their regular complaints as passengers often have to bear with the loud roars of aircraft engines. In addition, the study found that the converse was also true and that enjoyable music tends to enhance people’s eating experience.
