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.

The researchers at CSGA have been interested for some years now in the role of saliva in aroma release. Indeed, saliva contains salivary proteins liable to metabolize aroma compounds into new compounds, the latter also being potentially aromatic.
