Why You Should Salt Your Cookies, According to Science

Salty and sugary foods are the stuff that most food cravings are built on. But what happens when you pair them together?

You probably use salt to top French Fries and season meats and soups. But many bakers are including salty ingredients in their dessert recipes, including this one.

Anyone who’s had a salted chocolate chip cookie or a salted caramel ice cream will tell you the dessert mash-up is life changing — or pretty close to. But this BuzzFeed video backs that statement up with actual science explaining what happens when salt and sweet merge in your mouth. It involves the reaction of the two combinations on your taste receptors in your tongue.

After understanding the chemistry of combining the two flavors, you’ll find yourself reaching for salt more often while baking your holiday treats.
