Are you a supertaster?
Supertasters are people born with more specialized taste buds than the average person. You know you’re a supertaster when you can’t stand black coffee, broccoli, spinach, green tea, beer, scotch, cauliflower or soy products.
Women are more likely to be supertasters than men. Many Chef’s are supertasters, which could explain their success in a field where taste is king.
