Research confirms fat is sixth taste; names it oleogustus

Research confirms fat is sixth taste; names it oleogustus - Purdue University

Quote:
Fat should be considered the sixth taste and can be called oleogustus, according to a study from Purdue University.

"Most of the fat we eat is in the form of triglycerides, which are molecules comprised of three fatty acids," said Richard D. Mattes, distinguished professor of nutrition science. "Triglycerides often impart appealing textures to foods like creaminess. However, triglycerides are not a taste stimulus. Fatty acids that are cleaved off the triglyceride in the food or during chewing in the mouth stimulate the sensation of fat."
YES we must make fat #6

For decades the food industry has made every effort to make Americans oleo-phobic then spent all their time coming up with evil ways to make food low fat or fat free.

I'm looking forward to their effort to reverse the trend and make fat "OK" again. Just think of it! Food labels claiming the contents are "Full Fat!!"

I confess that I hate the taste of fat. Fat grosses me out....

Meat fat, that is. Non-meat fat is fine

I find that meat fat tastes best if you have been spending a lot of time outdoors in winter.

YI don't know, I think meat fat that has been crisped on a grill with a luscious piece of beef or pork attached is pretty yummy any time time of year

Just read the article. They mention a study related to the genetics of fat taste. I betcha folks like me, with Arctic ancestors, like fat more than people whose ancestors come from warm climates.
