You have to choose one flavor that your sense of taste will no longer be able to distinguish.Sweet,sour,bitter,salty, Umami,spicy( not a taste per se,but we’re generous ): which one do you choose to lose?
I know I cannot have sugar only for taste because of the damaging effect on the human body, salt is the same, excessive salt raises blood pressure,I haven’t heard anything negative about bitter, but bitter flavor alone is not going to do it for me.
Umami flavor sounds good to me. It is good for health, it is a protein which is made up of amino acids which are essential for life. I will pick umami flavor.
Umami has been variously translated from Japanese asyummy, deliciousness .
