[Differential taste sensitivity of Pygmy and non-Pygmy populations of the dense forest, Sudanese and Eskimos, in relation to their biochemical environment].

Abstract

Significant differences of taste thresholds for different sugars, salt, organic acids, and bitter products, observed in human populations in contrasted environments, are related to potential variations of traditional diet. In this respect, biochemical composition of the environment would be the major selective pressure for taste perception.
