MOFAD Roundtable: Flavor Added
Mar 10, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm| Twenty dollars
On Thursday March 10, from 6:30-8:30pm, join The Museum of Food and Drink and a panel of experts for a debate on the ins and outs of flavor. “Flavor Added”, the seventh installment of the MOFAD Roundtable series, focuses on added flavors in packaged foods and beverages. These flavors are found in everything from butter to orange juice to breakfast cereal. Yet debate abounds over the effects of added flavors on our health and our relationship with food.
Panelists will explore questions like: How do added flavors shape our food choices? Are they a crutch for the food industry, or might they be used to improve the sensory experience of food? What’s the difference between “artificial” and “natural” flavors, and how can we best define these terms?
Panelists include University of Pennsylvania doctoral candidate Nadia Berenstein, author Mark Schatzker, and Yale University School of Medicine professor Dana Small, with more to be announced.
General admission tickets are $20. Student tickets are $10 and are available with a valid student ID. Admission includes post-event reception and entry to MOFAD’s exhibition, Flavor: Making It and Faking It.
