Why Your Store Needs to Be Selling Black (Goth) Food

Besides being an Instagram hit, there's a reason black foods are so enticing.

A new color trend is gaining a lot of attention from consumers all around the world and a study published in Flavour journal starts to explain why. The research points out color as the most important product-intrinsic sensory cue, when it comes to taste and flavor expectations. The study was based on a large body of laboratory research that analyzed how people reacted to food color that did not match the taste and how it affected the overall experience. Taste is scientifically defined as the perception of the basic tastes (sour, sweet, bitter, salty) that are detected by receptors in the oral cavity. Flavor refers to the situations where a retronasal olfactory component (meaty, burnt, floral, fruity, citrusy and so on) is experienced. So color itself can't change the actual taste but it can affect the flavor experience.
