Rahul S. Khobragade, Santosh L. Wakode* and Naina S. Wakode

ABSTRACT

Context: The detection of taste perception is an important ability not only for animals but also for humans. The taste threshold is altered by various factors. The increased taste sensitivity has been observed in fasting subjects. Aim: The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of fasting and satiety state on taste threshold in lean normal subjects. Material and methods: After ethical clearance taste threshold was determined for four basic taste modalities during fasting and satiety state, fifty healthy male undergraduate students aged 18–21 years participated in the study. The taste threshold was evaluated using 7 different serially half diluted concentrations of glucose (2.00 M–0.031 M), NaCl (1.00 M– 0.0156 M), citric acid (0.05 M–0.0007 M) and quinine sulphate (0.001 M–0.000015 M). Statistics: The statistical analysis was done by using Mann Whitney U test. Result: A significant increase in taste threshold for sweet & salt taste was observed in satiety state (p<0.05). Conclusion: we conclude that there is decreased taste sensitivity in satiety state for sweet & salt taste.
