Flavor is more than just odor and taste. It also includes texture and temperature. It even includes the sense of pain, which is what you get from capsaicin in chili peppers. Put it all together and you have the ability to discern 100,000 different flavors.

The Science of Taste

  1. 1. Science of TasteTaste is the sense that helps us enjoy the foods we eat.  5 Basic Tastes Sweet Sour SaltyBitter Umami How Taste Works: From Tongue to Brain For more information, visit www.foodinsight.org http://bit.ly/ScienceofTasteNCBI Different Tastes on the Tongue Sour is mainly identified further back on the sides of the tongue.  We  predominately  taste bitter flavors at the very back of the tongue. We usually taste salty flavors on the forward sides of the tongue.  We mostly taste sweet on the tip of the tongue. The brain interprets the information as taste. These nerve cells pass along information to the lower section of the brainstem. Sensory nerve cells are activated by taste.  Taste begins on the taste bud where the specific taste comes in contact with a sensory nerve cell. @FoodInsight @FoodInsight FoodInsight.org Contrary to popular belief that certain regions of the tongue can only experience one taste, all parts of the tongue can detect all 5 basic tastes. However, there are some areas of the tongue more sensitive to specific tastes. The sensory nerve cell travels to and activates other nerve cells. Each taste bud has 10-50 sensory nerve cells. Yum!
