There is also a direct relationship between chewing and flavor. The more times a morsel of food is chewed, the more flavor that is released.

Now, whether that flavor is good or bad depends on how long one has been eating. :)

turk, sorry about the mix-up. the post was by albus, not me.

umair, perhaps the relationship between chewing and flavor is on a logarithmic or s curve. i imagine that the flavor tapers off after a certain amount of chewing…
