At present, the official landing of the new national standard of electronic cigarettes has been more than two months. In the face of the arrival of the regulatory era of “standards can be relied on and data can be managed”, how to practice the standard of “should not make the product characteristic flavor present other flavors except tobacco” in the national standard is a proposition that all practitioners continue to explore.
If you want to achieve the standard, you have to step into the standard. True flavor biological seed layout, intensive cultivation, in-depth focus, explore the essence of tobacco flavor. When everything comes back to the beginning, how do we taste tobacco flavor electronic atomizer?
In this issue, the real flavor biology will focus on “How to taste tobacco flavor”, and first take you to understand, what is flavor?
First, flavor is a comprehensive feeling
Flavor is a composite quality formed by the combination of different sensory experiences, which is a complex combination of smell, taste and trigeminal nerve perceived during the tasting process. Smell, taste and trigeminal sense are integrated and work together to form our comprehensive cognition of flavor perception.
Taste is a kind of sensation produced by the stimulation of non-volatile taste substances, consisting of sweet, salty, bitter, sour and fresh taste.
One idea is that taste receptors are distributed differently on the surface of the tongue. Sweet and salty at the front, sour at the sides, bitter at the base of the tongue, and umami throughout the tongue. However, it was not until 1974 that scientists overturned the concept. A scientist by the name of Virginia Collins proved through experiments that all tastes can be recognized in various areas of the tongue.
Human taste is perceived through taste buds, which are clusters of many taste cells that come together. When the smoke lingers in the mouth, the taste buds feel the stimulation of the smoke, and the proteins on the surface of the taste receptors interact, triggering the stimulation of chemical signals that are transmitted through the central nervous system to the brain. In the brain, specific flavors are recognized.
2. Sense of smell
The most important sensory experience in flavor is the volatile flavor substances that are sensed by the sense of smell. The main mechanism of action is sensed by olfactory cells and then transmitted to the brain by nerves.
The sense of smell involves two sensory systems, the olfactory nervous system and the nasal trigeminal nervous system. Smell is a sense of distance, which is the sense of feeling chemical stimuli over long distances.
In the process of inhaling the electronic atomizing liquid, the smoke has two ways to be perceived by the smell, one is the volatile substances and smoke produced after suction into the top of the nasal cavity with the air, and the other is the smoke through the turbinate bone or swallow through the back of the mouth into the olfactory epithelial cells, both ways will eventually be recognized by the olfactory epithelial cells.
3. Trigeminal sense
The trigeminal nerve is the fifth pair of cranial nerves and is a mixed nerve that contains both motor and sensory nerves. The nerve fibers of the trigeminal nerve , which extend from the temple to the eyes, nose and mouth, split into three branches of the trigeminal nerve, so we call it the trigeminal nerve.
The trigeminal nerve conveys a warning signal, similar to a sense of touch, which also gives us tactile information about smoke. It can detect a lot of taste and smell can not identify things, such as stimulation, heat, cool, astringent and so on.
Second, the mystery of tobacco flavor electronic atomizing liquid
Starting from the flavor experience, explore the mystery of tobacco flavor. We may be able to get a glimpse of what makes a good tobacco flavor from the three sensory properties.
At the taste level, the high quality tobacco flavor electronic atomization liquid should have the characteristics of harmonious and full aroma, pure and comfortable aftertaste in the mouth, no impurities; At the olfactory level, the smoke should be fragrant, coordinated, rich and distinct; At the sensory level of the trigeminal nerve, it is necessary to enter the throat alcohol and the smoke is delicate, soft and non-irritating.
As a global electronic atomization solution service provider, how to create an electronic atomization solution that has the ultimate experience in the three sensory characteristics is an unprecedented challenge, and it is the goal that Authentic Taste Biology continues to pursue.
The more you know, the deeper you know, the more you do.
Focusing on the source of tobacco flavor and focusing on the research and exploration of tobacco extract, True Taste Biology took the lead in establishing Yunnan Tobacco Research Institute in 2022 to promote the development of enterprises with science and technology, and lead the industry change with innovation. True Taste Biology actively explores scientific and efficient raw material treatment technology, and carries out freezing, alcohol precipitation, rotary distillation, centrifugation, molecular distillation, supercritical carbon dioxide extraction and other processing processes on tobacco extract raw materials to fully stimulate the odorant components in raw materials, reduce impurities and irritation at the same time, so that tobacco extract has the best aroma performance and aroma stability. To create a high quality tobacco flavor electronic atomization solution.
Of course, true flavor organisms have much more to do in exploring tobacco flavor. There is a long way to go, and there is still a long way to go ahead. And how to taste the tobacco flavor of electronic atomization solution? Answering that question requires a lot more than just an understanding of flavor. Next, we will continue to delve deeper into the characteristics of tobacco flavor.
