Abstract:
There is a common agreement among researchers about the involvement of multiple senses while taste is being perceived. We are here presenting an update on existing methods, going further on analyzing the perceptual interaction of taste and audition. So far, similar studies have been focusing on evaluating mostly pairs of interactions. Other studies have relied simply on participatory experiments. We decided to merge theory with the participantís initiative. And we also propose the insertion of more variability. With these report we reveal that when adding such complexity to this type of study, customized sonic cues can still have significant influence on the perception of flavor. We believe that the results here presented come closer to real gastronomic situations. And we open the discussion for new experiences that could follow this method towards further insights.
