Scientist Cuts the Perfect Cheese Sandwich
<snip>

LONDON (Reuters) - A British scientist has calculated the optimum thickness for a slice of cheese to make the perfect cheese sandwich, according to a study published on Monday.



In a bite-sized sandwich using pre-sliced white bread lightly buttered with margarine, a slice of cheddar needs to be at least 2.8 mm thick, the study found.


Dr Len Fisher from Bristol University was commissioned by the British Cheese Board to work out how to maximize the "cheesy" aroma in a sandwich.


"After a certain thickness, no increased amount of cheese will increase the 'cheesy aroma' impact of the sandwich," said Fisher.

...the British Cheese Board (i.e., the cheese producers' trade association).

The guy is a physicist, not a biologist, chemist, biochemist, or whatever usually counts as a "food scientist".

It's a PR stunt.
