Experts from different countries urge not to be tempted by free buns on an airplane. In particular, Dr. Charles Platkin of the Hunter College Food Policy Center in New York, explained why they should never be eaten if the tourist does not want to feel sick after landing.
Dr. Charles Platkin and part-time executive director of the American College Food Policy Center, analyzed a number of aviation dishes and warned that foods high in carbohydrates will not saturate the body, but will make you feel wildly tired upon arrival.
“Eating a lot of heavy carbohydrates like pasta with thick sauces, bread, muffins or cakes will make you feel lethargic, cranky, unsatisfied and unsatisfied with what you eat. Blood sugar levels will jump and then drop, which will negatively affect your well-being, ”the expert warned, US media reported.
Not only that, buns in the sky won't taste as good as travelers expect, as the taste buds are affected by the pressure difference in the cabin, and this reduces the level of oxygen in the blood. In other words, the part of the nervous system that reacts to smells becomes less sensitive, which further impairs the sense of smell.
So, Fritz Gross, director of culinary excellence at LSG Sky Chefs Asia Pacific, explained that there are two dishes that are better to choose on an airplane so as not to regret their taste – rice or stew, because they can be easily reheated without losing texture or taste. Everything else, except for the above and one drink (details here), will seem insipid. “We can simmer and reheat over and over again and it will still be a stew,” the expert explained.
Fortunately, there are things that can help improve the taste if a tourist wants to try board of creamy paste. For example, Professor Charles Spence, an expert on taste and food, said that engine noise on an airplane makes food 10% more bitter.
In an interview with the Telegraph, he stated the following: “Wearing a pair of noise-canceling headphones, in fact may be one of the easiest ways to improve the taste of food and drink at its best. Low pressure in the cabin, dry air in the cabin and loud engine noise – all this contributes to the fact that we cannot taste and smell food and drink.
