Taste Preferences

Understanding why taste preferences matter 




We all have different taste preferences – sweet, salty or fatty mouthfeel - and taste is a main driver of food choice. Understanding what tastes you prefer can help you to make healthier choices that satisfy your preferences.

Dr David Cox is a well known sensory researcher at the CSIRO. We interviewed him to discuss his latest research findings on taste preferences and impact on energy intake.
