Lingual lipase is usually secreted from von Ebner's glands, although there is great variation between species. Lingual lipase is thought to be an auxiliary enzyme for fat digestion and absorption in mammals; however, the reason for lipolysis in the oral cavity is not known. We focused on the gustatory sense and investigated the significance of lingual lipase in the perception of a fat taste by using orlistat, a potent lipase inhibitor. Five-minute two-bottle preference tests demonstrated that… CONTINUE READING
