The Best New Ingredient To Add To Your Food? Sound

Recent studies show music can affect how we perceive taste.

What’s the hottest new ingredient you might want to start playing with in your diet? Sound. According to The Guardian, the Crossmodal Research Laboratory at the University of Oxford recently did a study showing that those who ate cinder toffee while listening to high-frequency sounds described the taste as more sweet, while those who listened to low-frequency sounds said it tasted bitter. The paper also notes that a London restaurant, House of Wolf, used this knowledge to its advantage, serving diners a dessert that came with a telephone number; callers were instructed to dial 1 if they wanted a sweeter dessert, and 2 if they wanted a more bitter one. Those with a sweet tooth should take note, since sound has no calories.
