This presentation discusses the structural changes that occur during oral processing, and how these determine sensory perception. Tactile perception is discussed theoretically on the basis of the forces exerted onto the tongue surface and the sensitivity of mechanoreceptors. Specific attention is given to the state of lubrication of the tongue surface, introducing a new acoustic real-time in vivo measering technique for the state of lubrication of the human tongue surface.

  30. 30. How to measure friction?• Tribometry • Measures the lubricating effect of food materials on artificial surfaces • Low frequency • In vitro, independent of individuals • Reproducible, established• Acoustic measurement (NEW) • Measures the sound generated by scraping surfaces • High frequency (more similar to the sensitivity of the tongue mechanoreceptors) • In vivo, in mouth • Includes the effects of the interaction between food and the mucosa (e.g. acidic and astringent food) • Includes the effect of oral processing • Includes the effects of pre-meals and individual differences •Together to the next level 32

  32. 32. Analysis of the in vivo scraping sound of the tongue (NEW)• For a good analysis, many additional sounds must be removed (breathing, clicks, air flow by tongue manipulations)• Most relevant seems to be the frequency ranges 100-1000 Hz and 4-12 kHz 1,E+00 water coffee with cream water (saliva) 1,E-01 coffee with (whipping) cream Log scale! 1,E-02 Effect is a factor 10 amplitude (V) 1,E-03 (1 order of 1,E-04 magnitude) 1,E-05 1,E-06 Line voltage as a function of time 1,E-07 1 10 100 1000 10000 100000 frequency (Hz) Corresponding frequency spectrum of the cleaned signal Example: Water - coffee with (whipping) cream

This may be because the grinding with black coffee had temporarily smoothened the tongue surface.

  37. 37. Kineticssequence of systems in one run:half fat creamer – non carbonized soft drink – half fat creamerFrequency spectrum slightly smoothed Clearly, the acidic soft drink gives a higher signal than the half fat creamer. The signal of the half fat creamer is lower if it is preceded by the acidic soft drink. Possibly the grinding of the acidic soft drink smoothens the tongue surface
  38. 38. Applications acoustic tribology• Measurement tool for rough/dry mouthfeel (“sandpaper tongue”) o Low fat products o Astrigent products o High protein products• Measurement tool for surface textures o Fabrics, wood, etc. o Good-grip surfaces• Measurement tool hair care/skin care application (smoothness, silkiness)• Measurement tool for other applications (ball bearings, abbrasion, etc.)
