Are you a supertaster?
Supertasters are people born with more specialized taste buds than the average person. You know youâ€™re a supertaster when you canâ€™t stand black coffee, broccoli, spinach, green tea, beer, scotch, cauliflower or soy products.
Women are more likely to be supertasters than men. Many Chefâ€™s are supertasters, which could explain their success in a field where taste is king.
There are ways to trick your taste buds into liking foods that seem bitter to you as a supertaster. The most effective way to transform these foods is by steaming or cooking them. Then add some fat â€“ oil or cream and the bitter food can turn into a dish you'll love.
