Why Does Pizza Taste So Good?
Humans discern four types of taste: saltiness, sourness, sweetness and bitterness. Before this, it was thought that fat did not have a specific taste, but rather provided texture in food. Richard Mattes, professor of foods and nutrition at Purdue proved differently. He proved that humans can taste fat that’s why fatty foods taste so much better than fat-free foods. Eat what tastes good to you.
