Are You A Supertaster? "Highly sensitive tasters tend to have more food dislikes and perceive bitter tastes in many different foods; they are more likely to ask for sauce and dressings on the side, according to research done by Virginia Utermohlen, MD, of Cornell University. Moderately sensitive tasters tend to think about food in the most positive way of all three groups; chefs are most likely to fall into this category. Nontasters (who can't detect PROP but can detect other tastes) are the most likely of all three groups to prefer food that is intensely sweet." According to the article, one-third of Americans are supertasters!
From the Supertasters entry on Wikipedia: "Although not directly harmful, being a supertaster is not without some risk. A tendency to dislike certain generally beneficial foods such as green vegetables and grapefruit can make supertasters face additional risk for the conditions these foods prevent. On the positive side, however, supertasters generally do not enjoy alcohol or coffee, and thus are at considerably less risk of conditions like alcoholism and caffeine addiction." Hmm, I don't like vegetables, most alcohol and coffee. I wonder if I'm one?
