Taste buds, located on your tongue, are the sensory organs that give the sense of flavor. These buds are so small that a normal tongue has approximately 10,000 taste buds that are replaced every 14 days. Taste is “The sensation of flavor perceived in the mouth and throat on contact with a substance,” google.com. There are super small hairs on tastebuds called microvilli that send senses to the brain of how something tastes. Taste buds don’t do everything, so that’s why the nose is essential for taste. When chewing food, chemicals are distributed to the nose. These chemicals are used to prompt the receptors located in the nose. Without taste, life would be bland and boring.
Does sight affect taste?
Though one does not like to be misled, his or her eyes are constantly tricking the sense of taste. Taste is the perception of flavor of based on the mouth’s contact with food. The brain has expectations on the flavor of the food based on its shape and color. Because of this, when a food’s color is unlike what is expected, the brain believes the food’s taste is also different. The brain will relate a color of a food with other foods that color. For example, the color red is usually related to sweetness. Therefore, if a green apple’s skin is colored red, one might think the apple is sweeter than it actually is. Marketers use this to their advantage by coloring foods to make them “taste” better. This is why there are so many kinds of food dye in most store-bought products. In conclusion, the brain is more easily tricked than a person thinks.
