Presentation Transcript

I developed the idea for this project over dinner with my family. Often at dinner my Dad or Mom would ask what seasonings I thought were in the meal. Garlic was always obvious, but I’d miss the little things like salt or sugar. From this I came up with the idea to test others ability to taste the hidden ingredient.


To determine the sensitivity of taste buds in differing age groups.


If I increase the amount of sugar with each trial, then the participant will be able to identify the at 1 ½ tbs. of sugar added.

  • 1 cup per person (20)
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Water
  • Measuring cup
  • Tbsp. for measurements


Same taste

Something is different


1. Fill a cup with 1/2 cup of water.

2. Add 2 tbs. salt.

3. Ask the person to drink the water and choose what they taste from the scale.

4. Record data and repeat steps 1-2, rinsing out the cup and remeasuring the water, add 1/2 tbs. of sugar and redo step 3 until you reach 2 tbs. of sugar in the cup.
