Flavor Perception Is Influenced By Fat In Food

So what?
Fat in foods has a direct impact on taste perception by activating certain regions of the brain that control taste, aroma, and 'reward', say researchers.

The study, conducted by The University of Nottingham and the multinational food company Unilever, is published in the Springer journal Chemosensory Perception.

The three year study found that fats in food can reduce activity in these regions of the brain, thus influencing how flavors are perceived.

The findings could help the food industry develop healthier, less fatty food products without adversely affecting their overall taste or enjoyment.
There are no "healthy foods."

There is only eating healthily.

And there are plenty of "healthy foods" out there.

And people still overconsume Calories.

Meaningless, old, unsurprising data.
