The evolution of and individual variation in bitter taste and speculation on the future directions and applications of fundamental taste research
Humans are generally thought to perceive five basic taste qualities: salty, sour, bitter, sweet and umami/savory. Unlike other sensory systems such as audition and vision, which detect and perceive the external physical world of sound frequencies or light wavelengths, the taste system enables humans and animals to explore the chemical nature of the environment and subserves the internal physiological needs of the organism. For example, salty, sweet and umami tastes allow humans and animals to seek out essential minerals and energy- or nutrient-rich foods, while sour and bitter tastes help the organism avoid ingesting putrefied foods, unripe fruits, potentially harmful plant alkaloids and other toxins.
This column will provide a general overview of recent progress in studies on human taste, with a focus on bitter taste. Topics covered include: the location and activation of taste receptors; the evolution of and individual variation in bitter taste; and speculation on the future directions and applications of fundamental taste research.

An overview of recent F&F science Chewing gum: R.V. Potineni and D.G. Peterson had a couple of interesting publications regarding flavor release in chewing gum. First, the pair reported that the release of the sugar alcohol phase in sugar-free chewing gum was directly related to the release profile of cinnamaldehyde in the same product. The authors examined a number of flavor solvents in the study, including triacetin, propylene glycol and medium chained triglycerides.
