TASTE SENSATION: Girls can recognise taste better than boys
A STUDY on 8,900 schoolchildren in Denmark has found that women have a better sense of taste than boys.
The findings showed that girls recognised taste much better than their male counterpart, and boys need 10 per cent more sourness and 20 per cent more sweetness to be able to recognise the taste of something. Also, boys have a sweeter tooth than girls.
Carried out by the Danish Science Communication and The Faculty of Life Sciences, each child was supplied with a kit of taster samples. The tests were designed to recognize the ability of the children to discover sweet and sour tastes and to find out what they prefer when each sensation varied in intensity.
