As the population of older adults increases, the need for food which provides nutritional benefits but is also liked by this population will also increase. This need
extends to individuals who consume regular textured meals as well as those on modified textured diets. Lisa’s research investigates both of these areas. How we
perceive tastes and flavours of food changes as we age. Lisa explores the impact of these changes on liking of foods. She also investigates the effect of nutrient addition on sensory quality of food. Lisa’s hope is that, in time, everyone will be able to enjoy food which provides them with optimum nutrition.
