Taste Tripping with Illinois Science Council and Half Sour
August 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$18
Join us as we make Half Sour sweet with the power of “miracle berries”!
Illinois Science Council is partnering with Half Sour and CH Distillery to take you on a taste trip like you’ve never experienced before with “miracle berries”, the natural fruit product that makes sour flavors taste sweet. Learn the science behind taste, how miracle berries work with your tongue’s sensors, and the ecology of miracle berry trees. Participants will eat a miracle berry tablet and then sample a range of foods to experience how sour flavors become sweet after the miracle berry enhances activation of sweet sensors. The sensation lasts about 30 min.
Tasting of food and drink will be part of the program. Additional food and drinks are available for purchase. No science prerequisite is necessary, only your curiosity, but you must be 21 or older.
