[Via Kottke] We were amazed to learn about Non-Newtonian liquids (which don’t behave like normal liquids at all) and their applications in cooking. Now his may seem like bizarre, but it turns out, the science behind making certain types of noodles depends on their non-Newtonian properties. The video above shows how the sweet-potato starch noodles alternate from being solid when struck, to freely flowing through the colander.
