    Why do some foods taste the way they do? Why does chocolate taste really good?

    Sia Soltanahmadi is a Research Fellow at the School of Food Science & Nutrition at Leeds University. He has a background in mechanical engineering, and his research interests include understanding how friction and lubrication operate when we eat different types of food. His research into what happens when we eat chocolate is one specific example, reported in this newspaper article: Chocolate coats tongue to give melt-in-mouth sensation, study finds | Science | The Guardian
    Could this research lead to healthier food products - perhaps low-fat alternatives that taste just as good?
