One of the FLAVORING AGENTS used to impart a meat-like flavor.
An alkaloid derived from the bark of the cinchona tree. It is used as an antimalarial drug, and is the active ingredient in extracts of the cinchona that have been used for that purpose since before 1633. Quinine is also a mild antipyretic and analgesic and has been used in common cold preparations for that purpose. It was used commonly and as a bitter and flavoring agent, and is still useful for the treatment of babesiosis. Quinine is also useful in some muscular disorders, especially nocturnal leg cramps and myotonia congenita, because of its direct effects on muscle membrane and sodium channels. The mechanisms of its antimalarial effects are not well understood.

Intense sweetness surpasses cocaine reward. (1/228)

BACKGROUND: Refined sugars (e.g., sucrose, fructose) were absent in the diet of most people until very recently in human history. Today overconsumption of diets rich in sugars contributes together with other factors to drive the current obesity epidemic. Overconsumption of sugar-dense foods or beverages is initially motivated by the pleasure of sweet taste and is often compared to drug addiction. Though there are many biological commonalities between sweetened diets and drugs of abuse, the addictive potential of the former relative to the latter is currently unknown. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Here we report that when rats were allowed to choose mutually-exclusively between water sweetened with saccharin-an intense calorie-free sweetener-and intravenous cocaine-a highly addictive and harmful substance-the large majority of animals (94%) preferred the sweet taste of saccharin. The preference for saccharin was not attributable to its unnatural ability to induce sweetness without calories because the same preference was also observed with sucrose, a natural sugar. Finally, the preference for saccharin was not surmountable by increasing doses of cocaine and was observed despite either cocaine intoxication, sensitization or intake escalation-the latter being a hallmark of drug addiction. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings clearly demonstrate that intense sweetness can surpass cocaine reward, even in drug-sensitized and -addicted individuals. We speculate that the addictive potential of intense sweetness results from an inborn hypersensitivity to sweet tastants. In most mammals, including rats and humans, sweet receptors evolved in ancestral environments poor in sugars and are thus not adapted to high concentrations of sweet tastants. The supranormal stimulation of these receptors by sugar-rich diets, such as those now widely available in modern societies, would generate a supranormal reward signal in the brain, with the potential to override self-control mechanisms and thus to lead to addiction.  (+info)

Author Summary Sleep is a fundamental biological process regulated by evolutionarily conserved molecular mechanisms. In this work, we demonstrate a novel link between gustatory perception of sugar and sleep patterning in D. melanogaster. The presence of low dietary sugar reduced the arousal threshold for waking, leading to repartitioning of sleep into a larger number of episodes throughout the day. Gustatory perception was both required and sufficient for this effect. Further addition of sugar to the dietary environment suppressed the effects of gustatory perception through a gustatory-independent mechanism. Although the quantity of dietary sugar also regulated fat accumulation, gustatory perception was not required, indicating that diet-induced changes in obesity and sleep behavior may be mechanistically separable. These findings illustrate a mechanism for the regulation of behavioral state by the availability of dietary nutrients through the interplay between gustatory and non-gustatory factors.

Author Summary Communication between internal energetic state and taste perception helps animals control food uptake and maintain normal life functions. Honey bees provide an animal model for studies of food-related behavior, such as the role of taste sensitivity in choice-making between carbohydrate- and protein-rich foods (nectar versus pollen for honey bees). A young bees taste sensitivity to sugar predicts when she begins foraging later in life and influences her choice of foods. Vitellogenin (Vg), a protein produced in the bees fat cells, and juvenile hormone (JH) influence honey bee taste perception and food-related behavior. Vg and JH are connected by a feedback loop, and we perturbed this Vg-JH circuit using a double gene knockdown approach. In response, bees became more sensitive to sugar, had higher sugar levels in the blood, and died faster during starvation, while lipid levels remained constant. We identified that insulin like peptide 1 (ilp1), the adipokinetic hormone receptor (AKHR), and

Sodium is an essential micronutrient and, via salt taste, appetitive. High consumption of sodium is, however, related to negative health effects such as hypertension, cardiovascular diseases and stroke. In industrialized countries, about 75% of sodium in the diet comes from manufactured foods and foods eaten away from home. Reducing sodium in processed foods will be, however, challenging due to sodiums specific functionality in terms of flavor and associated palatability of foods (i.e., increase of saltiness, reduction of bitterness, enhancement of sweetness and other congruent flavors). The current review discusses the sensory role of sodium in food, determinants of salt taste perception and a variety of strategies, such as sodium replacers (i.e., potassium salts) and gradual reduction of sodium, to decrease sodium in processed foods while maintaining palatability.

The metacognitive cue of fluency is known to affect consumers evaluations and judgments (Schwarz, 2004). We questioned whether this effect extends to perceived taste experiences, and whether knowledge moderates the effect of fluency on taste evaluations. Across 3 experiments we demonstrate that the metacognitive cue of fluency is used by consumers in evaluating their taste experiences. Whereas disfluent cues are associated with lower taste evaluations for a utilitarian product (Experiment 1), disfluent cues are associated with higher taste evaluations for a hedonic product, especially for knowledgeable consumers (Experiment 2), when compared to a _disibledevent=font-size:8.5pt;>
Researchers from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and the University of Sydney discovered a new brain region that detects and integrates the energy content of food and its sweetness. The research team found that animals that ate food sweetened with sucralose (a substance 650 times sweeter than sugar) for more than five days, felt hungrier and consequently consumed much more food. The brain can, in fact, alter taste perceptions in order to regulate the appetite. When sweetness is much higher than the energy content of food eaten (i.e. its caloric content), the brain needs to recalibrate this balance by increasing the amount of total calory consumed. In the above experiment, when fruit flies who ate artificially sweetened food subsequently received normal food again, they consumed 30% more calories than before.. The scientists investigated this matter even further. They mapped a neural network that triggers when the animal does not consume enough energy. This pathway is part of a conserved ...

The scientists used a computer program to average the PET data from the subjects within each group, and then compared the obese subjects average with the normal subjects result. The program produced three-dimensional images highlighting areas where the obese group had higher metabolic activity than the normal-weight group. The scientists then superimposed these images onto a magnetic resonance image (MRI) of the whole brain, as well as a diagram of the brain s somatosensory cortex, known as a homunculus. A homunculus graphically illustrates the relative number of sensory nerves innervating various parts of the body as well as where the input from these nerves is received on the somatosensory cortex. The overlapping images revealed hot spots indicating obese subjects higher metabolic activity in the regions of the parietal cortex where somatosensory input from the mouth, lips, and tongue is received. This is also an area involved with taste perception. The enhanced activation of these parietal ...

Taste bud cells are morphologically classified into 4 groups (Type I -IV cells), two of which are involved in gustatory sig-naling. Type II cells express sweet, bitter, and umami taste receptors and transduction components and respond best to sweet, bitter, or umami stimuli, suggesting that sweet, bitter, and umami tastes are detected by different sets of Type II cells. Type m cells express putative sour taste receptors and respond to sour or multiple taste stimuli, indicating that sour tastes are mediated by Typem cells. These data suggest that each taste quality could ...
The gustatory system is primarily devoted to a quality check of food, while at the same time detecting nutrients and avoiding toxic substances. The initial step in taste perception takes place at the apical end of taste receptor cells, tightly packed into taste buds of the oral epithelium. The cells express taste receptors, which are responsible for detecting and distinguishing among sweet, bitter, salty, sour, and umami stimuli (1). In mammals, bitter and sweet and/or umami are the two main taste modalities evoking aversion and attraction, respectively. Humans also express pleasure for sweet taste but displeasure for bitter taste. On the other hand, mammals learn to reject a tastant if this tastant is associated with subsequent visceral malaise (2). Therefore, it is likely that the mammalian gustatory system is an excellent system to address the question of how emotion interacts with cognition and memory. To decipher rationally the underlying molecular, cellular, and system mechanisms, it is ...
Purpose Zinc sulfate is known to inhibit the bitterness of the antimalarial agent quinine [R. S. J. Keast. The effect of zinc on human taste perception. J. Food Sci. 68:1871-1877 (2003)]. In the present work, we investigated whether zinc sulfate would inhibit other bitter-tasting compounds and pharmaceuticals. The utility of zinc as a general bitterness inhibitor is compromised, however, by the fact that it is also a good sweetness inhibitor [R. S. J. Keast, T. Canty, and P. A. S. Breslin. Oral zinc sulfate solutions inhibit sweet taste perception. Chem. Senses 29:513-521 (2004)] and would interfere with the taste of complex formulations. Yet, zinc sulfate does not inhibit the sweetener Na-cyclamate. Thus, we determined whether a mixture of zinc sulfate and Na-cyclamate would be a particularly effective combination for bitterness inhibition (Zn) and masking (cyclamate ...
Cephalic phase of insulin secretion is regulated by autonomic and endocrine responses to food-related sensory stimulation such as sight, smell, and taste. Human taste perception comprises of at least five distinct qualities: bitterness, saltiness, sourness, sweetness, and umami, the sensation elicited by glutamate, commonly found in protein (meat, fish, and legumes) and flavor enhancer such as monosodium glutamate (MSG).. Both the sweet and umami taste stimuli had been shown to illicit cephalic-phase insulin release in rats. Oral sensory stimulation in human with modified sham feeding (MSF where food is smelled, chewed, but not swallowed) had been shown to enhance insulin release during the cephalic phase, lower postprandial glucose level, and improve glucose tolerance in healthy subjects. The loss of pre-absorptive insulin response has been shown to impair glucose tolerance. Furthermore, patients with type 2 diabetes and their first degree relatives had been shown to have impairment of sweet ...
The primary goal of HHL was to reduce CVD-related health disparities in a rural population in North Carolina. In this study, we tested the concept that participants in a dietary intervention designed to promote heart healthy eating patterns may respond differently according to their genetic predisposition of bitter taste perception mediated by the TAS2R38 gene and allelic variants that can affect receptor signaling and hence, perception of bitter taste compounds found in many vegetables. Our HHL sample was represented by two ancestral populations, African and Caucasian Americans, and we were cognizant of the genetic population structure of our cohort. When we analyzed the diplotypes and corresponding phenotypes of our cohort, we observed similar proportion of bitter tasters in the AA and CAU groups (Figure 1). There was a striking difference, however, in the proportion of bitter non-tasters and intermediate bitter tasters such that the CAU group had nearly triple the frequency bitter non-tasters ...
Abstract: The impact of elevated levels of complex savory flavorings and single aroma compounds on perceived saltiness was investigated. This study demonstrates that multisensory interaction between aroma and taste can be employed to compensate for the lower salt levels of healthier food products without disturbing the overall flavor pattern. The demonstrated saltiness enhancement by the savory flavorings was unraveled by experiments with salt-congruent single aroma compounds, using trained and naïve panels. Several savory compounds, of different chemical classes and different sensory impact, could be identified as key salt-enhancing compounds, providing a significant increase of perceived saltiness. As expected, an untrained, naïve panel appeared more suitable to demonstrate multisensory saltiness enhancement due to its synthetic attention than a trained descriptive panel. The salt enhancement results were confirmed by consumer tests. The extra aroma was also found to ameliorate the ...

PHILADELPHIA (April 24, 2019) - Scientists from the Monell Center report that functional olfactory receptors, the sensors that detect odors in the nose, are also present in human taste cells found on the tongue. The findings suggest that interactions between the senses of smell and taste, the primary components of food flavor, may begin on the tongue and not in the brain, as previously thought.. Our research may help explain how odor molecules modulate taste perception, said study senior author Mehmet Hakan Ozdener, MD, PhD, MPH, a cell biologist at Monell. This may lead to the development of odor-based taste modifiers that can help combat the excess salt, sugar, and fat intake associated with diet-related diseases such as obesity and diabetes.. While many people equate flavor with taste, the distinctive flavor of most foods and drinks comes more from smell than it does from taste. Taste, which detects sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and umami (savory) molecules on the tongue, evolved as a ...

The sensation of taste is generated in taste buds, which then send the information through the gustatory nerves to the brain. The neurotransmitter between the taste buds and the nerve had been thought to be serotonin, but mice genetically manipulated to lack functional serotonin receptors sense taste stimuli normally. Finger et al. have investigated another candidate neurotransmitter that functions at these synapses, adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Mice lacking the two ionotropic receptors for ATP (P2X2 and P2X3) did not show responses to taste stimuli in the gustatory nerves. In addition, these mice could not detect most tastes in behavioral tests in which they had to show preference for one substance over another. These results, considered with the release of ATP from taste buds when they are stimulated, show that ATP is indeed the neurotransmitter at these synapses. T. E. Finger, V. Danilova, J. Barrows, D.

Researchers postulate that umami and kokumi are evolutionary sensations that point to the presence of proteins and amino acids in a food, much like sweet is an indicator for carbohydrates, sour for acids, salts for minerals, and bitter for poisons. Why is Springfield the Capital of Illinois? When these receptors bind to glutamates and certain other amino acids and nucleotides, they send a signal to the brain. Because the taste of umami signals a high protein food source, we are metabolically attuned to enjoy it, just as we are sweet-tasting foods because they indicate a food source high in calories. The other four basic tastes humans can discern are salty, sweet, bitter, and sour. Some people call it the fifth taste, as it is distinctly not sweet, sour, bitter, or salty, but is instead sometimes called savory. The umami taste refers to foods that are fundamentally hearty and savory, as opposed to sweet, salty, sour, or bitter. How to use umami in a sentence. Who were the Progressives, and when ...

Scientists at Arizona State University have discovered that honey bees may teach us about basic connections between taste perception and metabolic disorders in humans.
DUBLIN, Oct. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Nutrition professionals around the world will convene in Dublin this month to discuss the latest strategies to address the obesity epidemic. One symposium will be examining the role of umami (one of the five basic tastes, known as the savory taste, which comes from glutamate) in light of recent research suggesting that umami not only makes food more appetizing but also increases the feeling of fullness, reducing the desire to overeat.. Recent scientific studies have shown that monosodium glutamate (MSG or E621), a sodium salt of glutamate described as umami seasoning, when added to an appetizer or soup prior to a meal can decrease appetite and food intake. The results identify new ways to facilitate healthy eating without decreasing satisfaction with a meal, and reduce food intake..

High time resolution is required to reliably measure neuronal activity in the gustatory cortex in response to taste stimuli. Hedonic aspects of gustatory processing have never been explored using gustatory evoked potentials (GEPs), a high-time-resolution technique. Our aim was to study cerebral processing of hedonic taste in humans using GEPs in response to sucrose solutions in subjects with different ratings of pleasantness regarding sucrose. In this exploratory study, 30 healthy volunteers were randomly stimulated with 3 sucrose solutions. The sucrose stimulus was presented to the tongue for 1 s 20 times. GEPs were recorded from 9 cortical sites with EEG sensors at Cz, Fz, Pz, C3, C4, F3, F4, Fp1, and Fp2 (10/20 system). The main result was that subjects who preferred the high-concentration (20 g/100 mL) sucrose solution had higher GEP amplitudes on the Pz, Cz, and Fz electrodes than did subjects who preferred the low-concentration (5 g/100 mL) or the moderate-concentration (10 g/100 mL) solutions
We all remember occasions when we ate something that just did not taste right: the overripe apple, the rotten meat, the sour milk. Our ability to reject these foods as unpleasant, even dangerous, resides in part in the gustatory cortex, a small region of the insula, deep inside the brain. Recent findings indicate that reduced activity in the gustatory cortex may be connected to anorexia nervosa.. The gustatory system is anything relating to the sense of taste, including the smell, texture, look and feel of foods. The gustatory process is inherently multisensory, says Duke University neurobiologist Sidney A. Simon.. When you put something in your mouth and begin to chew, all of these senses act at once to give you a oneshot taste of something, Simon says. You drink lemonade, not citric acid, sugar, pH this, pH that. Youre getting lemonade..

To qualify being a fundamental taste quality or modality defined as a group of chemicals that taste alike three empirical benchmarks Tyrphostin AG 879 have commonly been used. nervous system. We have explained electrophysiological reactions from solitary neurons in nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS) and parabrachial nucleus of the pons respectively the 1st two central relay nuclei in the rodent brainstem to water presented like a taste stimulus in anesthetized rats. Reactions to water were in some cases as powerful as reactions to additional taste qualities and sometimes occurred in the absence of reactions to additional tastants. Both excitatory and inhibitory reactions were observed. Also the temporal features of the water response resembled those of additional taste reactions. We argue that water may constitute an independent taste modality that is Tyrphostin AG 879 processed by dedicated neural channels whatsoever levels of the gustatory neuraxis.

I am trying to figure out the bud in taste buds. My sorry son-in-law #2 is a Bud, but he has good taste buds as he helps out the old man. I know what a plant bud is as it shows up every spring. Anyway, my buddies Jim Frank and Monroe Smith say they like pickled pig feet which makes them have bad taste buds.. I do not know how the subject came up, but one of my classmates (and sadly there only a few left from the LaFayette High 1947 graduating class) told me that she liked pomegranates, which I think is like eating a mock orange. Incidentally, she is on my jealous list, as Miriam Anne Kirkwood Syler made all us look dumb in reading and literature classes. A couple of months ago the Cobb Memorial Library put a plaque honoring her on one of the rooms. As a tribute to her poor taste bud, I left her a mock orange that I found lying along the stream at the West Point Park. I wanted her taste buds to sample it before I risked trying it out myself. I never heard from her but I assume that ...

However, sometimes a food or beverage tastes strange and this abnormality is not due to the substance but rather due to a problem with the taste buds. Similarly a strange taste can arise in the mouth without any food or fluid.. ...
This paper presents the results from an experimental laboratory investigation study on the freezing point of saline soil. The experiments were a part of a larger laboratory program whose objective is to understand how salt and water content as well as ion sort and type of soil affect the freezing point. Results show that the freezing point decreases with increasing salt content, and increases with increasing water content independent of the kind of soil. The freezing point is also controlled by the amount of soluble salt in the soil water and is influenced by common anions and cations as follows: Cl-->CO32-->SO42-and K+ Na+ Ca2+, respectively. Statistical results show a major fitting curve of freezing point with salt content that fits the exponential damping model except that the salt with chloride ion which agrees more with the linear model with a greater slop. At given water and salt contents, the freezing point of fine particle soils is lower than that of soils with a more coarse particle; ...
