The science behind the dishwasher

May 26 2009 Published by under Ramblings

Apparently, you’re not supposed to pre-rinse your dishes…

Most people who open a dishwasher to find plates caked with yesterdayโ€™s pasta blame the dishwasher. But the machine is usually not at fault.

Why certain foods are hard to resist

May 23 2009 Published by under Ramblings

This man is serious about his food….

The labels showed the foods were bathed in salt, fat and sugars, beyond what a diner might expect by reading the menu, Kessler said. The ingredient list for Southwestern Eggrolls mentioned salt eight different times; sugars showed up five times. The “egg rolls,” which are deep-fried in fat, contain chicken that has been chopped up like meatloaf to give it a “melt in the mouth” quality that also makes it faster to eat. By the time a diner has finished this appetizer, she has consumed 910 calories, 57 grams of fat and 1,960 milligrams of sodium.

Instead of satisfying hunger, the salt-fat-sugar combination will stimulate that diner’s brain to crave more, Kessler said. For many, the come-on offered by Lay’s Potato Chips — “Betcha can’t eat just one” — is scientifically accurate. And the food industry manipulates this neurological response, designing foods to induce people to eat more than they should or even want, Kessler found.
