How do you explain taste?
– Taste and flavor aren’t the same thing.
Taste refers to the perception of the sensory cells in your taste buds. When food compounds activate these sensory cells, your brain detects a taste, like sweetness. Flavor includes taste and odor. Odor comes from your sense of smell. Sensory cells in your nose interact with odor particles, then send messages to your brain.
You might associate odor with literally smelling something. But when you eat food, odor particles in your mouth also enter your nose through the nasopharynx, This is the upper area of your throat behind your nose. Flavor is the result of this odor plus taste. There are many possible flavors, depending on the intensity of each odor and taste.
