Centre des Sciences du Goût et de l’Alimentation
Welcome to the Centre for Taste and Feeding Behavior (CSGA). Starting in 2010, this laboratory is one the main international research Centre in this field. We hope that this web site will offer to the scientific community, students, actors of the socio-economic world and to the public in general, information on the works done and their application to science and society.
Where does the so-called bad "taste" of pulses come from?
Pulses have many nutritional and environmental benefits and yet they remain relatively uncommon on our plates. Among the obstacles to their consumption, these plant-based proteins are often criticised for having a "bad taste". In order to propose solutions to improve the acceptability of pulses, CSGA researchers have studied the molecules which could be at the origin of these bad "tastes".
Consumers do not appreciate meat substitutes: what can be done?
Researchers from the CSGA compared the sensory characteristics and the acceptability of five meat substitutes based on chickpeas, soya, wheat or mushrooms with those of different meats in various recipes.
A Tenure-Track Junior Professor Chair (M/F) in the field of neurobiology and olfaction is opened at the CSGA
Tenure-Track Junior Professor Chair is a new career route at INRAE. It enables the recruitment of scientists based on a research and teaching project that lasts three years. At the end of this period, and following an assessment of your scientific achievements and professional capabilities, you may obtain a full-tenure position as Research Director (DR2).
