The discovery is linked to a new study by the University of Michigan and I read today on Los Angeles Time HERE.
The study, published in the US National Library of Medicine, examines why some foods are more engaging than others. Researchers have identified addictive foods on a sample of approximately 500 students who have completed the Yale scale of food addiction, designed to measure whether someone has a food addiction.
At the top of the League there is, ça va sans dire, the pizza and there's a scientific reason that has to do with cereals and cheese.
The study found that certain foods are addictive because of the way in which they are processed: most are processed and fat, the more dependence.
The cheese appears to be particularly engaging because of an ingredient called casein, a protein found in all dairy products. During digestion, releases a substance in the opiate category attributable called casomorfina, also present in cereals.
So you're done. Your cheese addiction is explained: Thanks to science won't get to hell in girone dei Golosi, because your desire is not from your wanton attitude toward sin capital more beautiful than there is with lust, true?!
