Amino acids with different functional group show different taste such as bitterness, weetness and umami. Some of them elicit complicated mixed taste;e.g., L-methionine tastes bitter and sweet simultaneously. A multichannel taste sensor using lipid membranes was applied to amino acids. It was shown that bitter amino acids such as L-tryptophan have response… CONTINUE READING
