Are you a Supertaster ?               







The PROP supertasting story


Tongue pic3

   One of the hottest developments in flavor research in recent years is the discovery

   that people differ in their sensitivities to tastes, and that these differences are due

   to the particular taste genes they have inherited.


   One fun way to determine what your taste genes and sensitivities might be is called

   the PROP-tasting test. Depending on what you experience when you taste the

   compound PROP (6-n-propylthiouracil), you can be classified as a PROP super-

   taster, medium-taster or non-taster. Studies have linked PROP sensitivity to the

   types of food you prefer to eat (e.g. PROP supertasters tend to dislike fatty foods and bitter vegetables) as well as diet-related disease risks, such as obesity and coronary heart disease. 



Supertasting and wine

 Recent research from Dr Pickering (our President!) and colleagues has shown that PROP supertasters experience 

 the flavors from wine more intensely, are able to discriminate finer sensations in wine, and may prefer different

 wine to non-tasters. Winemakers, wine writers, and other wine experts are also more likely to be PROP

 supertasters than ‘average’ wine consumers!
