Tastebuds


Today, we were learning about our taste buds. We had 5 mystery liquids to taste. Each one of them made a different zone of our tongue react. The 5 zones are sweet, salty, bitter, sour and umami.

Liquid 1 was salt water that made the front sides of our tongue react. (SALTY)
Liquid 2 was sugar water that made the front part of our tongue react. (SWEET)
Liquid 3 was lemon juice that made the back sides of our tongue react. (SOUR)
Liquid 4 was soy sauce which made the middle part of our tongue react. (UMAMI)
Liquid 5 was coffee which made the back of our tongue react. (BITTER)

We also learned that when we hold our nose it makes the tastes weaker.

We had a great time learning about different parts on your tongue and tasting all the different types of liquids. Our favourite part was tasting the liquids and we learnt about the different zones on your tongue. Which are sweet, salty, sour, bitter and umami.

It was a great experiment. I am really enjoying learning about our tongue. On that day I also found out that I don't like soy sauce.
