Tongue: Important organ for receiving taste.
Our tongue has taste buds. If our taste buds come into contact with sugar Taste buds then convert sugar signals into nerve signals. It will run to our brain. The brain will interpret it as “What flavor is this?”
How many flavors can the tongue recognize?
Currently, it is accepted that The tongue can detect up to 5 flavors: sweet, salty, sour, bitter and mellow.
It has a mellow flavor that people may not know much about. Some people call it umami flavor, but if we have to put it simply, it’s the taste from MSG. MSG is monosodium glutamate. which is a type of amino acid It is a neurotransmitter. Can stimulate appetite It’s like we use chicken bones to boil in soup. The taste that we get from this chicken bone broth is umami.

How do the taste buds deteriorate ?
There is a research study that compares it with Japanese people. It turns out that Thai people have a high level of awareness of taste. This means that we have to season more than we can taste. What kind of taste is it, including sweet, salty, sour and bitter? The average out of 5 for Thai people is 4, for Japanese people it is not more than 3, while the taste is mellow. Japanese people still begin to recognize their taste at a level of about 3, while Thai people are at a 5 from a level of 6. Some are heavier. Try testing at level 6 and still not be able to taste it at all. Upon further inquiry, I learned that I am a person who regularly eats MSG.
