Sense of Taste
Taste is mainly a function of the taste buds in the mouth, but it is common experience that one’s sense of smell also contributes strongly to taste perception. In addition, the texture of food, as detected by tactual senses of the mouth, and the presence of substances in the food that stimulate pain endings, such as pepper, greatly alter the taste experience. The importance of taste lies in the fact that it allows a person to select food in accord with desires and often in accord with the body tissues’ metabolic need for specific substances.
