BY: SCIENCE MEETS FOOD

Here at Science Meets Food, we spend a lot of time thinking about the science of food. Whether working hard in the lab, strolling into a great restaurant, or procrastinating on Reddit, we love to explore food in all its magical dimensions and deliciousness.

(That’s probably why we’re all studying food science!)

With more than 400 articles written over the years, our team has pieced together an amazing collection of written work. So in the spirit of starting off the new academic year right, we’ve selected some of our most popular articles on food and flavor.

(Feel free to read while you’re avoiding more important work. We won’t tell anyone, promise.)

We scoured our databases to pull up the articles that just keep getting read by you (the readers) again and again. Our top collection features articles ranging from the science behind flavors to the history and traditions of some flavorsome foods. We’re proud of our writers for putting in the effort of crafting such interesting reads.

They’re quite a treat!

These articles are organized by views. Enjoy!
