In their latest podcast, the Nordic Food Lab investigates the science behind the physical sensations our tongue experiences while we eat.
The 21-minute podcast features Ben Reade, the lab's head of culinary research and development, who delves into the ''weird and wonderful'' tongue as he explains the chemical, physical, biological and evolutionary aspects of taste.
Reade helps clarifies what our tastebuds actually do, how they help us process flavors like bitter, sweet, salty and umami. ''This traditional idea that you have different senses in different places is just completely false.''
