Why are fattening foods so tasty? Or are they? I’m doing research on this subject. The first comments I read are that the above is true: we love fattening foods. And there is some logic to this idea. With high-energy foods, our bodies emit pleasure signals. And that pleasure signal in the brain’s reward centre translates into “give me more”. Next time, therefore, that cream puff will go down again with little resistance.

This is part of a new episode of Labyrint. The other part involves a technological tour de force at an American laboratory that has tried to make food last for years without refrigeration. They also want it to be shock proof – and of course: for ever tasty..
