Although taste influences food choices and favours diseases like obesity, there is no consensus about the existence of correlations between bitterness and anthropometric variables. Also, an electronic-based method for data collection could provide a more appropriate way for the evaluation of taste perception and save time.
The objective is to search for correlations between bitterness and anthropometric variables.

Evaluation of bitter taste
Participants will be evaluated as to the intensity of bitter taste when performing watery mouthwash with quinine.
- Sensitivity of bitter taste 1 [ Time Frame: 1 time ]It will be gently applied at the end of the tongue, by means of a swab soaked in the quinine solution at room temperature, in continuous movements from left to right, and will point a note to the bitter level.
- Sensitivity of bitter taste 2 [ Time Frame: 1 time ]The volunteer will perform a "mouthwash" with the quinine solution, and will point a note to the bitter level.
