Around 11 Molecules are known to science, which can be tasted by humans. In different combinations those molecules, also called Volatile Organic Compounds, make up the flavours of all foods we eat every day. They are major agents in a billion dollar flavouring industry as well.
The molecule tasting offers an experience of high quality and food grade isolated volatiles, dissolved in different media and accompanied by selected food items. Before the dinner it is necessary for the guests to agree to the consumption of chemicals by signing the menu.
A soft, careful introduction to the intriguing workings of food chemistry and promotes curiosity and public awareness of complex scientific topics.
