The truth behind those sugar cravings
Hungry for a muffin every time you drink coffee? There’s a scientific explanation for that. A Cornell University study found that people who drank caffeinated coffee perceived their brew to be less sweet, compared to those who had decaf with the same sugar level. According to study author Robin Dando, an assistant professor of food science, caffeinated coffee reduces your ability to taste sweetness, making you want more. Now that you know, go easy on the sugary stuff. And that cup of joe. The Health Promotion Board recommends no more than four cups of coffee or tea a day.
