When you travel, your taste receptors love savoury foods.
Research conducted by Cornell University food experts discovered that loud, noisy settings, such as flying, impair your perception of taste. The study discovered that persons who flew had decreased sweet receptors and increased umami receptors. The German airline Lufthansa revealed that passengers requested nearly as much tomato juice as beer on flights. The discovery raises fresh issues about how taste is impacted by factors other than our own internal circuitry, such as our interactions with our surroundings.
