Transcript of Supertaster

Supertasters tend to dislike strong bitter foods like raw broccoli, grapefruit juice, coffee, and dark chocolate. This may put supertasters at risk for certain cancers. Supertasters also tend to find highly fatty food and sugary foods less appetizing than non-tasters, as a result supertasters have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. Symptoms History This disease is genetic and there is no treatment for it. Treatment Prevention There is no prevention for this disease but there are some diseases that can come from being a supertaster and you can avoid those by eating healthy and getting exercise.

Fox. At the time, Fox was working with PTC when it exploded into the air. While the person next to him found it bitter-tasting, Fox did not taste anything. This discovery spurred on early work, which suggested that nontasters like Fox lacked a receptor for the N-C=S group.

Upon further testing, it was found that about 25 percent of the population is unable to taste PTC while 75 percent finds it bitter. In the family studies that followed, taste-blindness was found to be a recessive trait. Causes Supertaster disease is genetic and there are no causes for it.
