Jihva Lounge

Jihva... It’s the sensation of flavor perceived in the mouth and throat on contact with a substance. Its smell and taste… are in fact a single composite, whose laboratory is the mouth... and its chimney…the nose...

Food is one of life’s great and dependable pleasures. If we eat well in the sense of flavor and pleasure, we will also eat well in terms of health.

What we commonly call the “taste” of food is really “flavor”, resulting from the interaction between the senses of taste and smell. Other sensations from foods, such as the burn of a chili, the bite of a strong peppermint or the fizz of a carbonated drink, as well as texture, temperature and appearance all add to the flavor experience.

As much as so percent of wheat we perceive as taste is actually smell. Humans can discern about 20,000 different odors and ten intensities of each. Smell occurs when the odors reach the olfactory receptors in the nasal cavity via two routes- inhalation through the nostrils and through the back of the mouth as we chew and swallow. True taste occurs on “Jihva”… the tongue…. We are born with 10, 0000 taste buds located on the back, sides and the tip of the tongue, on the palate and in the throat. When taste receptor cells within the taste buds are excited by chemical stimuli, they detect five primary sensations: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and “umami”, the savory taste of glutamate found in protein foods. Each taste is sensed throughout the tongue, through we experience some tastes ore prominently in certain areas. For example, sweet tastes are more pronounced on the tip of the tongue, while sour tastes are experienced to a greater extent on the sides.
