"bitter blocker"

A dash of biological compound can fool your brain into thinking that black, bitter coffee is as smooth as a milky double latte: All the flavor, none of the calories.

A quiet revolution is under way in the world of flavour research, blending chemistry, molecular biology and genetics to cook up recipes your mother never imagined: In this emerging field, it's not the food that will be modified, but you — the eater.

Imagine a compound that could dupe your tongue into thinking bland oatmeal was hot-fudge-sundae sweet? Or another that could make kids hoover spinach like Popeye?
