I had not really heard much about the "Bliss Point" other than in relation to the food industry
where it is regarded as the correct balance of ingredients like sugar, fat and salt that tempt
people to enjoy a product.
For nutrients that we like and therefore seek out, there is a particular concentration that makes food most palatable.
- Too lilttle sugar, and it's not sweet enough. Too much, and it's too sweet. The "just right" amount is the Bliss Point.
- Too lilttle salt, and it's not salty enough. Too much, and it's too salty. The "just right" amount is the Bliss Point.
- Too lilttle fat, and it's too bland. Too much, and it's too rich. The "just right" amount is the Bliss Point.
Combinations of key components in a food product will tempt us even more than one solitary item.
Suddenly I have noticed combinations of things like "Salted Caramel" cakes, puddings and sauces which I guess provide "triple bliss".
