Summary

Nutrition and Sensation explores how sensations can impact nutrition. It unravels the hidden sensory universe acting to control our appetite and nutritional desires. The sensory influence on food choice is ubiquitous. Whether it is the color of soda, the viscosity of maple syrup, or the aroma of chocolate, the sensory experience fuels consumption.

The book covers the impact of olfaction, gustation, retronasal olfaction, vision, vestibular function, hearing, and somatosensory and tactile nature on nutrition. It also discusses the use of the sensory system to treat nutritional disorders including obesity. Special attention is given to the mechanisms surrounding smell and taste and how they can influence satiety and weight. This book is a fascinating read for anyone looking for deeper understanding of the link between the sensory system and nutrition.
