Taste Manipulation


Ready To Power Your Continuing Education?

Learn about how taste may make us overeat, to whether it’s possible to manipulate our taste to enjoy foods we dislike!

Contains the following Continuing Education modules:

  • Manipulating Taste Perception
  • Taste Perception and Overeating
  • Genetics of Food Preferences

Manipulating Taste Perception

Do we “taste” sound? Or eat with our eyes? How much of the flavours we feel are real? In this report, we explore ground-breaking experiments on the illusion of food flavours. This way, you can use a few tricks to your advantage!

In this module you will learn…

  • Whether it’s possible to trick our taste to enjoy foods we dislike 
  • The fundamentals of taste perception 
  • Which roles our five senses play in taste perception 
  • Whether smell might be more important than taste when it comes to detecting flavours 

Genetics of Food Preferences

We all have favourite foods… and those we dislike. But could taste perception be in our genes? Were you born to taste foods differently? Let’s find out if your tastes for much-loved foods (or least-wanted ones) were pre-determined by your DNA!

In this module you will learn…

  • Whether genetics could explain our individual food preferences
  • Why some of us prefer sweet foods over savoury foods 
  • What carrying the “sweet tooth” gene might mean for you
  • Whether it’s possible to override our genes and train ourselves to like foods we find unpleasant 

Taste Perception and Overeating

When you eat high-calorie foods, you feel a sense of satisfaction. But do some people get more pleasure from eating than others? Could this cause overeating and weight gain?

In this module you will learn… 
  • Whether taste perception is making us overeat
  • If food enjoyment is the same for everyone 
  • Which taste-reward mechanisms may explain someone’s tendency to gorge more than others
  • Whether food can make us euphoric, and if so, how this could be contributing to our gluttony and overeating 
  • Why some of us have a different reward response to food, and whether this might be making us eat more
