Dark dining has been a popular culinary trend for a few years now.
People are blindfolded and put in a dark space where they cannot see what they’re eating. Some say it enhances flavors and the overall dining experience, but is this actually true?
Well, according to a recent study, eating and seeing do have a lot to do with each other.
The German study had people who were blindfolded eat the same thing as volunteers who weren’t covered. They were then asked to give their opinions on the food they ate. The results will surprise you because apparently your eyes have much more to do with your stomach and taste buds than you thought.
A recent German study showed that people who ate blindfolded consumed less than those who could see what they were eating. The folks who couldn’t see the food still said they felt just as full, though.
