The scientific reason why we crave carbs (D’Marge)

A recent study from the Department of Food Science and Technology at Oregon State University may have discovered why we crave carbs. Scientists have long believed that the human palate is only able to recognise a small number of primary tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and umami. The list hasn’t changed in years, but findings from the Oregon State study indicate that there may be a sixth taste – a ‘starchy’ flavour associated with carbohydrate-rich foods like bread and rice.
