TIP OF THE DAY from our Nutritionist Dr. Tomás Barbosa:
Sweet, salty, savoury, sour, and bitter — these are the five tastes that allow us to enjoy daily meals. They also have a more practical role that is to keep us safe from harm by giving us clues as to which foods may be toxic and harmful or unlikely to provide the necessary nutrients.
Mechanisms related to taste are relevant to the regulation of appetite and its influence on our overall health.
