Ah, crisps. Who doesn't love them? If only — and I'm being nitpicky here — if only they could, I don't know, turn your tongue some ungodly colour for no reason. Right? Oh, wait, PepsiCo's Twisties to the rescue!
Crisp lovers, rejoice! Scientists from the University of Nottingham have found that the salt in crisps is only released into the mouth around 20 seconds after chewing, and by that time, the crisps are probably on their way down your neck. The researchers say that this "salt burst" is underused and could pave the way for a reduction in salt but not taste within your snack foods.
