According to a recent research published in the Food Research International journal, there is a growing belief that being surprised with some taste can change a person’s mood.
Several tests of yogurts were conducted in 3 groups consisting of 24 members. The team of scientists from Austria, Netherlands and Finland, used four different methods to measure people’s emotional responses and find out what emotional consequences from eating yogurt different people had.
The scientists have found that eating vanilla yogurt made people feel most happy and gave them a strong positive emotional response.
Yogurts with other fillers and fruit made no big difference in their emotions and mood.
The author of the study doctor Jozina Mojet from Netherlands, says, that this kind of information can be very valuable and will give insight into the way we subconsciously react to different products. It can also explain what our mood largely depends on.
