Girls have more taste buds than boys!

I read it in a book

Professor Tim Jacob - Cardiff University

Some people are ‘supertasters,’ some are ‘regular tasters’ and others are ‘non-tasters’ based on their ability to taste specific bitter substances.

Children have the most taste buds, which may explain why they are more sensitive and tend to be more fussy about what they eat.

Women are supertasters or non-tasters more frequently, while men tend to be regular tasters – this applies to children as well.
