A whole host of personal traits are determined in part by your DNA. One of these is your bitter taste perception. Does it seem that you taste bitter flavours more or less strongly than the people around you? This can possibly be explained by your genetic predisposition.
Bitter taste perception and heredity
To date a number of genes have been proven to play a role in determining a person’s individual sensitivity to bitter taste perception. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to predict how sensitive to bitter taste perception you will be.
