A supertaster is someone who senses taste with greater intensity, especially bitterness. This correlates with responses to chemicals such as PTC (phenylthiocarbamide) used in taste test strips to help determine whether someone is a supertaster, taster or a low-taster. The reason for our evolving a supertasting is unclear but it is thought to be related to recognizing potentially toxic plant alkaloids since it is estimated that this trait is in the ~75% of people who can taste PTC.

Read our blog, Can Supertaster Testing Reduce Food Waste? to see how this trait is put to good use. Lots of great educational material as well.
