Taste is a sensory mechanism designed to "test" foods and other substances before they enter our body. Taste sensations are perceived through taste buds on the tongue, the roof of the mouth and near the pharynx. Taste buds contain receptors for taste and a nerve conveys the sensation from the taste buds to the brain. This is the mechanism by which we perceive the basic tastes: salty, sweet, bitter, sour and umami.

Data Mining
before embarking on a resource-intensive research study it is wise to review existing information first. That process can be time-consuming and even overwhelming. We can carry out that step for you. At your request, a report can be created from historical data and can be used as a springboard for the next round of research.
