My hypothesis is that not a lot of people can taste the difference, and it is wrong because lots of people can taste the difference between low fat milk and regular milk. My prediction was not correct. People can taste the difference between low fat crackers and regular crackers. My question was: Can people taste the difference between low fat and regular fat? The answer is: Yes, people can taste the difference! My materials are low fat crackers, regular crackers, low fat milk and regular milk. Rosie and I also made a big poster to state the question, boxes to hide the ingredients in so no one sees which is which, and sign up slips for the data.
