Females generally have a finer sense of taste than males. In studies conducted by LIFE food sciences, women picked out tastes with a 10 per cent greater accuracy. Men needed approximately 20 per cent more sweetness to recognize the difference and 10 per cent more sourness. And, according to a Yale study, 35 per cent of women fall under the category of “supertasters” because they have more taste buds than the average person. Only around 15 per cent of men can make the same claim.
