Pancreatic what? Look – I’ve never even BEEN to Panama…

Ms Roberts said: “The smell of sizzling bacon in a pan is enough to tempt even the staunchest of vegetarians. There’s something deeper going on inside. It’s not just the idea of a tasty snack. There is some complex chemistry going on.”

A bacon sandwich really does cure a hangover – by boosting the level of amines which clear the head, scientists have found.

The reaction between amino acids in the bacon and reducing sugars in the fat is what provides the bacon sandwich with its appeal

Researchers claim food also speeds up the metabolism helping the body get rid of the booze more quickly.

Elin Roberts, of Newcastle University’s Centre for Life said: “Food doesn’t soak up the alcohol but it does increase your metabolism helping you deal with the after-effects of over indulgence. So food will often help you feel better.

“Bread is high in carbohydrates and bacon is full of protein, which breaks down into amino acids. Your body needs these amino acids, so eating them will make you feel good.” 1
