I thought some of you guys might be interested in a new study that got out about our tasting bud also able to taste fat along with sour, sweet, bitter, salt and umami (protein). I didn't even know about the protein one.
it's no surprise for me that we can taste fat because our body as a very good way to make us want certain types of food.
Read the article with a grain of salt because it's full of low fat propaganda BS. It goes on and tells that those with the best ability to taste fatty foods tend to eat less and where the ones with the lowest BMI. I would be very interested to see the real results.
Anyways, just for our general culture's sake.
