Dog Food: Yummier Than It Seems

Pâté or dog food? Either could be yummy.
That’s because you probably wouldn’t be able to differentiate which is which in a blind tasting, according to a study scheduled to be released today by the American Assn. of Wine Economists.
Researchers provided 18 volunteers five food samples to try in a blind taste test. Only three were able to identify the canine fodder.
"We have this idea in our head that dog food won’t taste good and that we would be able to identify it, but it turns out that is not the case," said Robin Goldstein, a co-author of the study that is expected to be published online today.
Goldstein said the tasting demonstrated that "context plays a huge role in taste and value judgment," even though researchers warned the participants that one of the five foods they were going to taste was dog food.
