Note[edit]

Citation 31 should be the following:

"Huang AL, Chen X, Hoon MA, Chandrashekar J, Guo W, Trankner D, Ryba NJ, Zuker CS (2006). The cells and logic for mammalian sour taste detection. Nature 442: 934-938."

It's better to have the original paper as opposed to a ScienceDaily article.

Tomatoes[edit]

Don't you guys think tomatoes are metallic? Whenever I taste them they taste like blood. -- User:Sneaky Oviraptor18 I also think that tomatoes juice looks like pure blood. -- User:supermax2424

Saltiness[edit]

Cesium... really? is this hypothetical? or are you talking about a cesium salt because I wouldn't want to be the guy who got to test what metallic cesium tasted like. I'm not editing because I don't know and don't care enough. I just thought talking about the taste of a highly reactive element like cesium was kinda humerus.

Umami[edit]

The taste known as umami is a sensation of salt, it doesn't belong in this article, unless this is a place for culinary hype. I suggest that a reference or comment to umami would suffice. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.69.202.145 (talk) 14:11, 19 June 2016 (UTC)

Reliable source citations say otherwise, and Wikipedia needs to follow what reliable source citations say. Bondegezou (talk) 10:01, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
