Washington: A scientist has said that people actually can see the flavor of foods, and the eyes have such a powerful role that they can trump the tongue and the nose.Speaking at the 245th National Meeting and Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world`s largest scientific society, Terry E. Acree, Ph.D described how people sometimes "see" flavors in foods and beverages before actually tasting them."Years ago, taste was a table with two legs - taste and odor. Now we are beginning to understand that flavor depends on parts of the brain that involve taste, odor, touch and vision. The sum total of these signals, plus our emotions and past experiences, result in perception of flavors, and determine whether we like or dislike specific foods," Acree stated.
