CHEWING TRIVIA

Horace Fletcher, an importer, wrote ‘The ABC of Nutrition’, published in 1903. In it he espoused the notion that each mouthful of food should be chewed 32 times.

French food scientists have recently (2008) built a chewing machine (also known as a mechanical mouth, master masticator, munch-o-matic, chew-chew) that is the most accurate device so far to duplicate the complicated process of chewing food. The device grinds, chops, rotates, moistens and swishes solid food, imitating the action of teeth, tongue and saliva in the human mouth. This mechanical mouth is part of an international effort to come up with a computer chip that can evaluate food taste and aroma.
