Life Kitchen learned through research that those who lost taste and smell due to COVID-19 had some distinctive symptoms. They’ve discovered that they no longer want to eat things like onions, garlic, meat, and eggs, and they’ve found that certain foods trigger parosmia – or changes or distortions in the sense of smell; Anosmia or loss of smell; and phantosmia – or smelling something that is not there.

“Each of these olfactory conditions can have a profound impact on physical and mental health,” said Life Kitchen.

Life Kitchen found that it applied its five principles of taste and aroma – umami, smell, stimulation of the trigeminal nerve, which is responsible for facial sensation, texture, and layered taste – to teach more than 1,000 people with cancer again To enjoy food. The cooking school hopes to do the same with COVID patients.
