 Complex Aromas Make for a Satisfying Meal
Researchers opine that making your food smell complicated can pave way for a more satisfying meal.

The study, by Rianne Ruijschop at Nizo Food Research in Ede, the Netherlands, and colleagues, was published in Chemical Senses.

To reach the conclusion, boffins added two different strawberry aromas to small pots of yoghurt. They then asked volunteers which was the most filling. Although to the untrained nose the smells were indistinguishable, one pot contained a simple aroma from one chemical, and the other a more complex aroma made up of 15 chemicals.

All the participants reported feeling more satiated after eating the yoghurt with the complex aroma, reports New Scientist.

In another experiment, however, Ruijschop found that given a much larger supply, volunteers ate the same amount of both yoghurts.
