1. What is a supertaster?

Our tongue is covered in tiny bumps containing our taste buds, which allow us to taste foods. Supertasters have many more taste buds than usual and are much more sensitive to certain tastes and flavours.

It's not much of a superpower though, as it means that some foods can often taste very bitter, especially green vegetables like kale and broccoli.

2. Could you be one?

Only a quarter of people have supertasting ability. Are you one of the few? Take our quiz to find out.
