Infographic : Why do sweets taste sweet?

Amazing Human Body (DK)
By Richard Walker

Being able to smell and taste allows us to enjoy food and drink and many other aspects of life. The senses of smell and taste are closely linked; both are located in the head – one in the nose and the other in the mouth. Both detect chemicals that are carried in the air (smell) or food (taste). And they help us to distinguish between the sweetness of sweets, and the bitterness of foods that might be poisonous.
