According to Popular Science people with lots of taste buds are forking super tasters.
Not only does this super tasting ability have to do with the amount of taste buds but it also has to do with the way your taste buds work or their ability to detect different molecules.
It’s forking somewhere in the brain we get the message that recognizes bitter, sweet, salty, sour and umami (savory).
Also some of this is genetic. People from Malaria-Infested parts of the world tend to carry a gene that makes them less sensitive to bitter. (I didn’t forking make this up…Read it your forking self from Popular Science)
According to supertaster.com Super-Tasters have a hard time and much less of a preference towards consuming-
Scientific American reports that super-tasters just taste these foods much stronger than other people.
Wikipedia’s list of foods that super-tasters are sensitive towards and prefer not to consume foods that are-
Cheddar Cheese (no whey!)
According to some of the references. People who are not sensitive to the above forking lists are non-tasters but people do fall in-between.
I have found some of this information BUT NOT ALL is linked to purchasing forking taste kits to find out if your a super-taster, a non-taster or somewhere in-between.
Are YOU a Forking SUPER-TASTER?
