Is it better for your health to have a good masticate first, rather than just a quick chew before swallowing?

Anyone know of any scientific studies done on mastication?

Your replies could settle an argument myself and t’other half were having over the dinner table last night!

Mind you - then again - they might not! I've posted this on the Liverpool board after all ;)

Tet, a good mastication gets the digestive juices flowing, so is very beneficial.

Dave! As a dentist <erm>, which would you recommend for the healthiest results

a) slow, methodical mastication over several minutes before swallowing

b) quick fire mastication so the swallowing comes much sooner.

I find b) more to my liking, otherwise the rest of my food gets too cold before I've had chance to chew!

I would say that Liverpudlians are more expert on swallowing reflex Tet. Remember my husband's protestations at the nurses thickening his fluids post stroke. He said he was going to write to Lucozade! Probably depends on quality of digestive track and if you mind farting/belching.
Pom with the very good peristalsis.

Ms Pom,

Me too, nothin' like a nice village green, 'though I would miss the sea view.

Or just a village where the police turn up, rather than asking if the murder was racially motivated, say no, we'll be there tomorrow.
