I'm sure it can..... but the whole concept behind Sensory Specific Satiety is that it's not enormously flavourful and varied and doesn't need to be in order to be healthy and satisfying. In fact, the flavourful variety is what can tempt one to eat more. The food industry is well aware of this phenom and puts it to great use in order to make food hyper palatable.

In fact, David Katz produced a diet book a few years back with this in mind called The Flavor Full diet. It's a bit Rodaley and full of anecdotes but it was basically an elimination diet, focusing on eliminating flavours not food groups etc. Having the dieters get used to eating just one flavor type at a time before adding variety back. Very convoluted but the idea being to retrain satiety centers and rehab taste buds that had become accustomed to the the plethora of flavours and mouth feel that's the norm with*engineered* food. He claimed success..... but then he would, wouldn't he.
