  • In order to get taste sensation 116 male and 82 female subjects were tested by dropping solution on tongue. Table I shows the number of subjects in each selected age group. none of the subjects complained gastrointestinal discomforts and drinking and smoking habits were moderate (Less than 5 cigarettes a day). Taste sensation was elicited by applying standard tap water solutions of sucrose(sweet), , sodium chloride(salty), citric acid (sour) and quinine (bitter) on tongue. The dour concentrations of each solution are given in Table 2. The test were done about 1 hour after meal . A drop of approximately 0.1 ml of the lowest concentration of solution was placed on tongue. The number of subjects who recognized the taste of concentrations were recorded in each age group. The obtained results were as follows ; 1. The sweet taste sensation of each age group was more sensitive in female than in male. 2. Decreased level of sensitivity to sweet. salty, sour and bitter taste was detected in the 40 year age group. 3. Females tent to be more sensitive to taste than males generally.

  • Richadella dulcifica, a native shrub in tropical West Africa, gives red berries that have the unusual property of modifying a sour taste into a sweet taste. The red berries contain a taste-modifying protein named miraculin. A synthetic gene encoding miraculin was placed under the control of constitutive promoters and transferred to lettuce. High expression of miraculin was obtained, with accumulation of up to 1% total soluble protein in lettuce leaf. In addition, the miraculin expressed in lettuce possesses a taste-modifying activity.

  • This essay attempts to reveal how taste spontaneously cultivates and why it is necessary for cultivating taste to edify our personality and to develop culture. It is a key of the solution of the problems that taste always reflects its judgment through pleasure. Because the grounds of the universal validity of the judgment of taste are found, whenever taste tests the validity of its own judgment, the so-called 'delight of discovery' makes taste cultivate itself. For having the moral personality, we need to practice spontaneously the morality of our own behaviour and for judging whether an artwork to represent the period is succeeded or not, we need to have a high insight to select the cultural heritage. But the autonomous thinking can delightfully be made a habit, judging the beauty of artworks. In the main body of this essay, it is determined from the three examples of the negative judgment of taste which Kant suggested in deduction. According to Kant, the negative judgment of taste means that the beautiful work is displeased, but what it asserts is that taste is cultivated. I formalize the methods of reflection of taste revealed in three negative judgments of taste into'resisting', 'indicating of error', 'self-retracting'.(Chapter 2) And from this, I emphasize the necessity to cultivate taste in the way that these methods of the cultivation of taste can affect building our personality by stimulating our reason to have interest in moral(Chapter 3) and in the way that taste directly judges the product of cultural succession.(Chapter 4) In the end of last chapter, I examine further essentially the method of the reflection of taste, to inquire into how to enable it.(Chapter 5) Especially, I try to illuminate its grounds through Schiller's concept of the "impulse of amusement(Spieltrib)", because his explanation helps us to understand the dynamics of taste's delight of discovery. Although the abilities of mind conflict with each other, taste has the characters that it reflects to encourage them for each other and that it is vitalized by its own activity. We, as it were, can pleasantly handle two tasks, because taste makes the impulse of amusement from conflictive impulses in mind. In conclusion, I state that we have to experience directly the impulse of amusement like creative artist, because it is maximized from creation.

  • The purpose of this study was to develop a seasoned Hwangseoke-jeot(a kind of salted and fermented fish) with chitosan having less fishy smell and salty taste. In order to decrease the fishy smell and increase the palatable taste effectively, four types of seasoning were developed, in which minced ginger, garlic and onion were included. In order to improve the color and flavor of seasoned Hwangseoke-jeot, high-quality powdered hot red pepper was also added in all the seasonings. Seasoned Hwangseoke-jeot type 1 had the oil and roasted powder of sesame, which are known to decrease fishy smell and palatable taste, and was the basis of other seasoned Hwangseoke-jeot. Type 2 had the oil and roasted powder of perilla, which also were known to decrease fishy smell and to increase palatable taste effectively. Type 3 had roasted soybean powder and laver to increase savory and palatable taste. It was developed especially for old and young people who like savory taste. Type 4, containing citron syrup, was for the young and children. All the developed seasoned Hwangseoke-jeot samples had better red color and other sensory properies than the control (S-company's seasoned Hwangseoke-jeot), as tested by colorimetry and sensory evaluation. More than 1% (w/v) of chitosan gave an astringent taste to seasoning, so it is recommended not to exceed 1% (w/v) in the seasoning. The developed functional seasonings of jeot would be applicable to other kinds of jeot.

  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of preschool children's taste preferences on their intake of nutrients and the degree of dental caries. The subjects were 126 preschool children (boys 62 and girls 64) in Daegu area. Their taste preferences and food intake were investigated and their teeth were also examined. The energy intake of boys (1550 kcal) were significantly higher than that of girls (1441 kcal). Daily dietary intakes of nutrients-except niacin and vitamin C-were higher than those of RDA. Vitamin B$_1$ intake of the group preferring a salty taste was significantly lower than that of the other group (p<0.05). Vitamin B$_2$ intake of the group preferring a salty taste was significantly higher than that of the other group (p<0.05). Vitamin C intake of the group preferring a hot taste was significantly higher than that of the other group (p<0.05). The group with a preference for sweet had more experiences of dental caries and more decayed teeth than the other group, but which is not significant. The experiences of dental caries were negatively correlated with protein intake (p<0.01). The decayed teeth were negatively correlated with energy and protein intakes (p<0.01). Our data suggested that taste preferences are associated with vitamins intake and the degree of dental caries in preschool children. It means the sweet preference increased the experiences of the dental caries.

  • Objectives : The aim of the study is to investigate the relationship between salivary flow, palate recognition threshold, DMFT index and oral health influence point (OHIP-14) of the adults over 40 years old. Methods : Salivary flow and taste recognition threshold were measured in 220 adults over 40 years old from three dental clinics in Daegu from January 3 to February 4, 2012. A total of 208 questionnaires were analyzed. Results : The adults recognized the sour taste in low concentration level when the salivary flow was faster. DMFT index was low in those who recognized sweet and sour taste that affected OHIP-14. Conclusions : Tooth decaying food must be restricted because of its high acidity in the past despite the individuals' taste recognition threshold was neglected. Before the diet control, it is necessary to measure the taste threshold of the individuals. Training for improving salivary flow is very important to prevent dental caries and to preserve good taste.

  • This research was conducted to predict taste of barley kanjang using multiple regression analysis between taste components and sensory score. In the analysis of single correlation, the correlation coefficient of proline, alanine, Methionine, lysine, histidine, lavulinic acid, ${\alpha}$-ketogutaric acid was significant in 5% level. On the other hand, the taste of barley kanjang was not significantly effected by threonine, serine, cystein, phenylalanine, succinic acid, arabinose, xylose, and sucrose. It was impossible to measure taste of kanjang with barley bran to use simple correlation analysis. The 93% of barley kanjang taste was predicted using multiple regression analysis with taste components and sensory evaluation scores.

  • Sensory factors are important determinants of appetite and food choices but little is known about factors affecting taste acuity and preference of Koreans. Any factors causing deficits in sweet taste perception may lead to over consumption of simple sugar, which is related to several chronic diseases. This study was conducted to determine factors affecting sweet taste sensitivity and preference. Subjects were 30 government employees who were serving as school dietitians or in the area of public health while they were studying in the program for the qualification to become nutrition teachers. Sweet taste threshold and the optimally-preferred sweetness of omija jelly were determined by a sensory evaluation and general characteristics, health-related lifestyles, dietary habits and food preferences were determined using a self-administered questionnaire. For the subjects of this study, detection threshold concentration of sucrose solution was $0.184{\pm}0.06%$ and optimally-preferred sucrose concentration of omija jelly was $13.88{\pm}2.28%$ and there was no significant correlation between the sweet taste sensitivity and preference. Subjects who had higher(${\ge}4$ out of 10) physical or psychological stress and who had late getting-up time (after 7am) tended to have lower sweet taste threshold (higher sensitivity) than their counterpart. The sweet taste preference determined by optimally-preferred sucrose concentration of omija jelly tended to be lower in the subjects who eat slowly. Those who answered in the questionnaire to prefer sweet foods did have significantly higher optimally-preferred sucrose concentration of omija jelly. Further research is required to determine whether decreased sensitivity and increased preference for sweetness can increase the actual intake of simple sugar.

  • In order to setup the diet guideline of five grains, five meats, five fruits, and five vegetables for the diseases of five organs, I reviewed the their tastes by comparing "Naekyeong" with "Euhakibmun", "Dongeuibogam". 'Ma(麻)' in "Naekyeong" means not a hemp, a ramie or a jute, but a sesame(胡麻;참깨). 'Maik(麥)' in it means both a barley(大麥;보리) and a wheat(小麥;밀). 'Guak(藿)' in it means bean leaves(콩잎), leaves of a red-bean(팥잎) or brown seaweed(海藻;미역). 'Gyu(葵)' in "Euhakibmun Jangbujobun(臟腑條分)" is a miswritten word for 'Welsh onion' caused by similarity of shape of word. Food of a salty taste according to five elemental arrangement in "Naekyeong" is really salty according to "Euhakibmun" and "Dongeuibogam". But a barley(大麥) and a wheat(小麥) of sour taste are bitter, a chicken of sour taste or hot taste is sweet, nonglutinous millet of sour taste is sweet, an apricot of bitter taste is hot, a sesame seed of sweet taste is sour, a nonglutinous rice of hot taste is sweet, and a horsemeat of hot taste is bitter according to them. There are two ways to recommend the food for diseases of five organs. One way is to promote or control the Qi(氣) of five organs according to "Somun(素問)" and "Euhakibmun Jangbujobun", the other way is to build up the Yin(陰血) of five organs according to "Yungchu(靈樞) five tastes(五味)". The two different ways are not contradictory to each other, but complement on the view point of their substances(體) or actions(用).

  • Marsh calm(Corbicular elatior)with a short-term storage in raw and a law-rate of utilization has been increasing the needs to develop new marsh calm processing products for a temporary mass treatment and long-term distribution, Therefore the processing conditions of marsh calm beverage using proteolytic enzyme hydrolysis were investigated. A partial hydrolysis at 6$0^{\circ}C$ for 1 hour after adding 3% Alcalase as more effective than a hot water extraction to develop taste compounds from the marsh calm. The result of ommission test showed that nucleotides and their related compounds were contributed in the taste of the marsh calm hydrolysates rather than free amino acids. The taste of the hydrolysates was produced by association with these compounds rather than only one compound s the hydrolystes taste differently for the control when one of these compound was omitted. The hydrolysates were fractionated to molecular weight below 500 dalton to eliminate bitter taste and to improve it flavor from the hydrolysates, 0.05% bay leaf was more effective to improve the odor than other herbs.
