Quote of the Day 4 “The small and elite group of scientists who create most of the flavor in most of the food now consumed in the United States are called flavorists” (Schlosser). In today’s world there are many different types of scientist. There are biologist, chemist, psychologist, etc. There are now people called flavorists. There job is to use their nose and taste buds to make sure certain foods taste great. Fast food restaurants are always competing with each other to have the best tasting burgers, fries, and chicken. They don’t care if the food is healthy all they care about is if the food tastes good. If the costumers like the food they don’t care how it is prepared as long as it tastes good to them. Fast food companies hire these flavorists to taste there food and tell if it’s good. A flavorist decides whether the food is good or not. They decide what makes up the food like the amount of salt used or the amount of fat.

Even if the food doesnt taste great as long as its healthy people will still eat it. These flavorists should deny food that is not healthy for the consumer. Its time that these people change the way they do their job and start thinking about the health of the American citizen....
