it’s not a secret that the way food looks has an effect on our willingness to eat it. that’s why top chefs spend so much time perfecting the presentation of their plates, and food companies spend so much money on marketing and packaging. of course, taste is the most important sense when it comes to enjoying food, but just how important is sight?try this thought experiment: a bowl of yellow-colored gelatin is placed before you. how would you expect it to taste, sweet or sour? it could be that you think it will taste sour, because of your prior experience with other yellow foods that are sour, such as lemons and g fruits. or you could think it will taste sweet, based on your memory of other sweet foods that are yellow (like bananas or pineapple).food producers rely on these kinds of taste oc
