Today, we explored our sense of taste. We know that our taste buds help us when we taste food. We tried different foods and worked out if they were sweet, sour, bitter, salty or umami. We learnt that different parts of our tongue help us identify the different tastes. Of all the different tastes, we were most intrigued by ‘umami’. We know that cheese, meats and foods such as broccoli are umami.
