How many tastes we are enjoying today are artificial? How many of them are still real? I found this lovely website the other day and was amazed that so many tastes could be simulated by chemical compounds.
Almost immediately I decided to take this data source for the visualization assignment for the taste.
Visit the applet here.
- Type in the applet to search for a certain odor/flavor. All that matches the keyword would be highlighted in yellow.
- Click on one odor and all similiar (could be simulated with same compound) odor would be highlighted in red.
