SECTION ONE: INTRODUCTIONTOPIC: Investigation of taste – Taste interaction of receptor stimuli and texture of food.In the following research, it involves all the aspects that have been tested scientifically. Themanipulation of all the independent variables have been done in order to achieve an efficiency inthe following lab based experiment.AimTo analyse the perception of taste and food choices in malnourished people.INTRODUCTIONTaste receptors are considered as those sensory organs that help in analysing the taste.These are actually the cells that are located inside taste buds. After the person intakes an amountof the food, it gets mixed with saliva present inside mouth. So, there are various different typesof food items that are different in taste such as it can be sweet, sour, spicy, etc. In actual, thereare five types of taste receptors and all these have a different influence on various perceptions ofaroma as well as flavour of food (Mosca, van de Velde and Stieger, 2015). Genetics of taste isalso considered as a sort of perception because as per some statistics, it has been proved thatgenes actually have some relationship with the receptors and taste sensitivity. Five well knowntypes of receptors include sweet, saltly, umani, sour and bitter. Salivary amylase is an enzymethat is being produced by the salivary glands and play an important role in the digestion ofstarches in stomach. The actual process is to perform the process of hydrolysis in which thecatalysis of starch is done in form of dextrin and maltose. Texture of food is classified as theproperty of specific item that when enters the mouth, is being sensed by the receptors inside thetaste buds. As the food item can be of any type such as it can be crunchy, soft, hard, etc. so, thetexture of food can be analysed by sensing in mouth. So, the texture of food can be of differenttypes but it can be analysed by the person after in taking it. Usually, tongue receptors are locatedinside the taste buds within the mouth.An actual role of the receptors is to investigate about various changes which means thestimuli. In this, it is obvious that the person intakes different types of food items; each ofdifferent taste. So, receptor stimuli is classified as the factor that helps in analysing the differencebetween different types of tastes the person has. The taste receptors are not activated always but1
