More and more people have robots at home they cook. The truth is that they make life much easier. But there’s nothing like a good chef tasting food at different stages of cooking. What if it could also be done by robots? or more complicated, What if it could be done by mimicking human chewing? This is exactly what a team of scientists from the University of Cambridge is working on, in USAin collaboration with the Beko appliance brand.
And, in fact, it is not the same to enjoy a meal as soon as you put it in your mouth than after chewing it a bit. When this is done, more saliva is secreted and digestive enzymes change taste cues which are then transmitted to the brain.
