Challenges in Taste Chemistry and Biology discusses the biochemistry of human taste transduction and perception. Rating: (not yet rated) 0 with reviews - Be the first. Challenges in Taste Chemistry and Biology discusses food taste from the biochemical as well as the chemical point of view. This book is divided into four sections. The first section contains an overview chapter that reviews taste transduction and perception.

Taste is the most easily accessible chemical structure-biological activity relationship, and taste chemistry studies, i.e. the chemistry of sweetness, saltiness, sourness, and bitterness, have application to general biology, physiology, and pharmacology. Biochemistry of Taste and Olfaction examines the biochemical aspects of taste and olfaction and their relevance to nutrition, medicine, and food science. More specifically, it considers the biological processes that influence dietary habits, nutritional status, and enjoyment of food, as well as other important social and biological phenomena. Taste receptor cells are organized into taste buds. The chemical detection of taste agents resides in specialized epithelial cells, taste receptor cells, which in vertebrates are present as ovoid clusters, or taste buds (), each containing 50 to taste buds are embedded within the nonsensory lingual epithelium of the tongue, and they are housed within connective tissue. We are committed to ensuring that the chemical sciences contribute to their full potential to tackling the major global challenges of today and tomorrow.
