Nutrition and Sensation, 2nd Edition (Original PDF from Publisher)
By Alan R. Hirsch
Nutrition and Sensation, Second Edition continues to explore how sensations unravel the hidden sensory universe which acts to control our appetite and nutritional desires. The sensory influence on food is found everywhere―whether it is the color of soda, the viscosity of maple syrup, or the aroma of chocolate―the sensory experience fuels consumption.
This book continues to discuss the impact of olfaction, gustation, retronasal olfaction, vision, vestibular function, hearing, and somatosensory and tactile nature on nutrition. It also focuses on the use of the sensory system to treat nutritional disorders including obesity, with attention to the mechanisms encompassing smell and taste and how this can influence satiety and weight.
Nutrition and Sensation, Second Edition provides a deeper understanding of the fascinating link between the sensory system and nutrition.
