Measuring how we taste potato chips’ saltiness could lead to reduced sodium but not lost flavor. The aim is to develop a series of technologies that accelerate the delivery of salt to the tongue by moving the burst from 20 seconds to within the time that you normally chew and swallow. This would mean that less salt would be needed to get the same amount of taste.
