June 20, 2012 Meeting
In his talk, “Bev-O-Metrics: Spinning the Bottle to Profile Drinks,” Subha Das, assistant professor of chemistry at Carnegie Mellon University, will show how chemistry and food collide in his research by discussing the flavor profiles of liquids, from morning java to cooling afternoon soda to crisp evening wine. Spectral data such as nuclear magnetic resonance offers a window into the profile of these drinks. The presentation will examine how these profiles relate to genomics and metabolomics and how these complex profiles can be determined and used under real world conditions for education and enjoyment. And to deliciously put theory to practice—if time allows—we will conclude with taste tests.
