Genes Play Major Role in Determining Individual's Sour Taste Perception
...s have long known that sour taste is stimulated by acids
in foods and beverages. In fact, the word acid is derived from the Latin 'acidus,' meaning sour. However, we still do not completely understand how the taste system is able to detect and translate acidic molecules on the tongue into a neural signal t...
