I have thought of a funny concept on what makes things taste like this, taste like that, and it kinda looks like this:
- Sweet = Sugar (C6H12O6)
- Sour = ?
- Salty = Salt (NaCl)
- Bitter = ?
What I'm trying to figure out is what is the simplest substance that makes this taste like that. That's why it clearly defines that sugar is the simplest substance that makes things sweet and salt makes things salty. I wonder what substance makes things sour?
What is the substance makes things sour?
BONUS: Figure out what makes things bitter.
