Supertaster, At Risk For Hypertension

Ever heard about a “supertaster”? Sounds like a superpower right? Supertasters are people who are particularly extra sensitive to taste, specially bitter ones. It is thought to have been developed from the evolutionary genes to easily detect unsafe foods and toxins. It could be a cool superpower then! 

Supertasters can have twice as many taste buds as most people does. The more taste buds you have, the more heightened your response to taste is. It is said that women, and those from Asia, South America, and Africa have more chances of being a supertaster. There are certain foods that supertasters have less preference for because they would have a hard time tolerating the taste. Some example are cabbages and brussel sprouts, certain alcoholic beverages, coffee and carbonated water. You would think that having super charged taste buds mean you need less flavoring for your food. According to research, supertasters need less fat or sugar but it's the opposite for salt. This is because salt helps temper the bitterness of food. 
Salt helps cancel out bitterness, one of the sensations that supertasters experience in Technicolor. This may explain why the supertasters in the study perceived the low-sodium cheddar cheese to be twice as bitter as the Cracker Barrel, and liked it far less than the other study participants did. "They needed the salt to block the bitterness of the cheese”2
The predilection of supertasters to salty food puts them at higher risk for hypertension and other health concerns. Too much salt in the body can raise your blood pressure because of the extra water it stores in the body. Combination of high salt intake and high blood pressure can also lead to a build up of calcium that gets deposited in the kidneys forming stones.
