Recent studies have demonstrated that kokumi substances such as glutathione are perceived through the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR). Screening by a CaSR assay and sensory evaluation have shown that γ-glutamyl-valyl-glycine (γ-Glu-Val-Gly) is a potent kokumi peptide. In the present study, the sensory characteristics of chicken consommé with added(More)
The aim of this study was to conceptualize a new dish design process used by highly reputable chefs at fine dining restaurants, using cognitive modeling methods, and prioritize the important culinary success factors (CSFs) of the cognitive structures involved in creating new dishes characteristic to Japanese chefs of Japanese and French cuisine in fine(More)
We investigated how gustatory and olfactory information contributes to the preference for dried bonito broth in mice. In the two-bottle preference test, intact mice consumed dried bonito broth in preference to water or an amino acid-nucleotide (AN) solution containing the same concentration of amino acids and nucleotides as that in dried bonito broth. It(More)
Recently, many chefs have collaborated with researchers and used scientific techniques in their cooking. These researchers advise chefs from a scientific perspective. However, they do not know what chefs think and what concept they want to express through their dishes. Once scientists understand what motivates chefs in the creation of their new dishes, they(More)
We investigated to determine whether dried bonito broth flavor induces a reinforcing effect using the conditioned place preference (CPP) test. Only dried bonito broth did not induce CPP. Sucrose induced CPP in 20% solution. A 21.86% dextrin solution, with the same calorie content as the 20% sucrose solution, did not induce CPP, but a dextrin solution(More)
