Can you tell Pate from Dog Food?
Ever wondered what dog food tastes like..? Well, according to a recent survey, you donât really have to taste dog food to know. You can taste pate and knowâ¦!!
In a study conducted by Robin Goldstein of the American Association of Wine Economists and colleagues, researchers provided 18 volunteers, five food samples to try in a blind taste test. After the results were out there were a handful of 3 people only who could tell the difference between dog food and pate!
The foods given for the test:
The pate given to the volunteers were duck liver mousse, pork liver pate, two imitation pates - pureed liverwurst and Spam and Newmanâs Own dog food.
The test statistics:
Eight participants believed the liverwurst was the dog food, and four thought the Spam to be the dog chow. Two people identified the high-end pates, and only one identified the duck liver mousse as dog food.
I have never tried pate, apparently whipped and creamed duck liver or other internal vital organs of dead animals however exotically prepared cannot allure me to try pateâ¦ not in this life time. That is to say Iâm stuck in a deserted island after surviving a shipwreck and the only thing I floated ashore on was a crate of canned pateâ¦ Now that would be irony!
I invite your thoughts on this!
