"Taste of pork links with your genes"


According to a new study the taste of pork one craves for, depends on a particular gene we have.

The study investigated how people with different versions of the gene for an odor receptor gene, which is sensitive to a specific compound naturally present in pig meat, rated the taste of different pork samples.

In both smell and taste tests, participants' response depended on the version of the gene they had, with one version resulting in more favourable responses than the other.
