Something to Chew On: Mastication Based on Food Haptics and Its Impact on Calorie Estimation

The results of three experiments show that food haptics and mastication influence consumer calorie estimations. Specifically, higher mastication (based on rougher versus smoother and harder versus softer foods) reduces calorie estimation, with the effects getting attenuated when decisions are made under time pressure and reversed for consumers with high BMI.
