Taste Human senses - taste

Fact file


Our sense of taste is easily tricked - especially if you can't see or smell what you are eating. With a partner, take turns tasting different foods. Make sure that when it is your turn to taste you hold your nose tightly, and that your eyes are closed. You will be surprised to find how difficult it is to tell one type of food from another.
Some tasting ideas: slices of apple, pear, onion, carrot, orange, lemon - experiment!

Test your senses!
