taste buds. In addition to producing picky eaters, the condition also carries health implications. Supertasters tend to be thinner, drink less alcohol, smoke less and have lower rates of cardiovascular disease, studies have shown.

Tricking the taste buds with sweetness enhancers Researchers at Senomyx, Inc. in La Jolla, Calif., are developing compounds that can enhance sweetness or saltiness by activating or blocking certain taste receptors. The compounds, which could help reduce the amount of sugar or salt added to certain foods while maintaining the normal flavor, are scheduled to appear in a wide variety of food products within the next few years.

Neotame: New sweetener could reduce calories while retaining taste Attention soda fans: Your favorite beverage could soon reduce calories while retaining taste thanks to neotame, a non-calorie derivative of aspartame that is 10,000 times sweeter than sugar.

The sweetener, approved by the FDA in 2002, is starting to appear in a small number of food products and dietary supplements. (AGFD 157, Wednesday, March 29, 4:15 p.m.)
