The Supertaster Test is a taste test that will tell you if you have tasted enough of the world's most famous spices. You may not realize it, but there are several reasons why you might fail this tasting. For one, you may have the wrong idea about what constitutes a "spicy" spice and what makes a "sweet" one. The goal of this article is to provide some simple tips on how to pass the Supertaster Test so you can get to enjoy all the great spices that the world has to offer.
First of all, have you ever noticed that some people never go through the Supertaster Test? The reason for this is that they don't use the correct type of testing strips to gauge their degree of heat with the spices they are about to taste. When I was preparing for the Supertaster Test, I found that there were two types of taste testing strips available: the unsweetened and the sweetened ones. In this article, I will discuss each of these types and why they are important for your cooking adventure.
Unsweetened taste testing strips are the first type of product you should look for when you're preparing for your Supertaster Test. These strips contain only the flavor of the spice being tested, which leaves the rest up to your own tastes and preferences. If you don't care too much for the sweetness, then this is an excellent way to go. On the other hand, if you want to be able to appreciate the bitter taste of many different spices, then you'll probably find this very useful. Some common spices that come with bitter taste test strips include: cardamom, cayenne, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and thyme.
Sweetened taste testing strips are very popular in that they provide almost 100% of the sweetness that you will find in most regular tasters. Many people, however, find that they prefer the bitter taste than the sweetness of a spice. If you feel this way, the sweetened variety is a good choice. On the other hand, some people will find that they prefer the fullness that non-tasters provide and the supertasters have lost their flavor.
If you're preparing for your Supertaster Test, the best way to do it is by purchasing a professionally packaged, prepackaged supertaster test kit. These kits contain everything you need to test for all the spices mentioned in the article. They also contain a special glass jar, labeled with your name and the name of the spice you are testing.
The second type of product you'll find on the market that is useful for preparing for the supertaster test is a prepackaged instructional kit. These kits are similar to the ones you'll find for flavoring ice cream and come with a recipe, as well as a glass jar and some literature on the correct way to use the product. The instructions will cover not only how to make the supertaster taste bitter, but also give you an idea of the volatile oils and tastes they add to food. This information will be invaluable if you ever decide to try this delicious technique on your own. There are even kits available that include a recipe and some canned vegetables to add to your diet.
The third type of product that can help you prepare for your supertaster test is a book on cooking with vinegar. The author, Linda Bartoshuk, has done extensive research on the effects of different vinegars on various foods and dishes. In her book, she includes recipes for apple cider, breads and crackers, vegetable dishes, sauces for fish and poultry, and vinegar for making just about any beverage you can dream up. There are even specific recipes for beer, wine and champagne. Her book offers recipes for non-alcoholic and alcoholic versions of many of the things you'll be putting into your supertaster.
You can find similar books that will provide you with a wide variety of other methods you can use to prepare for your supertaster exam. Many of them offer complete directions that include detailed instructions, from steaming vegetables to using citrus and wine vinegar to marinade meats. If you're looking for more specific information, the internet is full of sites that have information specifically for preparing for the test. In fact, some sites offer online forms you can fill out in order to get a "real" tasting of the product, along with a recommended level of intake. If you prepare properly, you'll do better on your supertaster examination!
