Research shows that coffee makes coffee more sensitive to sweet taste.
A research team from Professor Alexander Fondstad of Aarhus University in Denmark reported that coffee dulls bitter taste and makes sweet taste stronger, MedicalXpress reported on the 21st.
As a result of conducting an experiment to test taste and smell before and after drinking coffee in 156 people, there was no change in the sense of smell, but only the taste, the research team said.
Coffee has been shown to slow the bitter taste and increase the ability to feel the sweet taste of sweetened foods. Sweet food makes you feel sweeter.
Drinking dark chocolate with a bitter taste reduces the bitter taste, the research team said.
The effect of changing taste of caffeinated coffee, decaffeinated coffee or coffee remained unchanged.
This shows that it is not caffeine that causes coffee to change taste, the researchers explained.
This suggests that taste buds, which are responsible for bitter and sweet taste, can be easily affected, the researchers pointed out, as evidence that it may be possible to reduce sugar and calories added to food.
Taste buds are a collection of taste cells that detect five tastes: sweet, bitter, salty, sour, and umami (umami) in the tongue and mouth.
The results of this study were published in the latest issue of’Foods’.
