1988 "Taste-Smell Interactions are Tastant
and Odorant Dependent.
When a tastant
(ie, a chemical in food) interacts with taste buds, neural signals are transmitted along the gustatory neuron to the brainstem.
Taste disorders are caused by conditions that interfere with the access of the tastant
to the receptor cells in the taste buds (transport loss), injury receptor cells (sensory loss), or damage to gustatory afferents nerves and gustatory pathways (neural cells).
The Sensa Tastant
crystals, which are set to hit Scotland next year, boost the flavour of meals so trick dieters in to believing they have eaten more than they have.
When a tastant
binds to a receptor, it signals other molecules that, in the mouth, immediately send an "accept" or "reject" message to the brain.
The invention has application, for example, in the design and formulation of odorant and tastant
In the present study, an effort was made to define a fat detection threshold for the free fatty acid, linoleic acid, and examine the ability of linoleic acid to modulate the intake of another tastant
Redpoint's advanced, tastant
discovery platform incorporates broadly flexible research tools including molecular and cell biology, high throughput assay development and screening technology, and electrophysiology, as well as several novel proprietary components.
2000), masking or 'mixture suppression' again may be predicted, leading to underestimation of the tastant
strength when the maskers are present.
Methods for representing taste perception of a particular tastant
in a mammal are also described, as are methods for generating a novel molecules or combinations of molecules that elicit a predetermined taste perception in a mammal, and methods for simulating one or more tastes.
Enhancing salty taste through odour--taste--taste interactions : Influence of odour intensity and salty tastants
His thesis was entitled The Impact of Bitter Tastants
on the Cardiovascular System.
