University of Connecticut, Storrs 06269, USA
Ann N Y Acad Sci 855:805-9. 1998..Preference for CA fell from non-pg to first trimester and then rose from first to second and third trimesters. QHCl became less disliked from non-pg and first trimester to third trimester...

- Variation in oral sensation: implications for diet and healthValerie B Duffy
Department of Allied Health Sciences, University of Connecticut, Storrs, Connecticut 06269 2101, USA
Curr Opin Gastroenterol 23:171-7. 2007..Important advances in our understanding of how taste, smell and somatosensation contribute to oral sensation are reviewed and the nutritional and health implications associated with variation in oral sensation are discussed...
- Food preference questionnaire as a screening tool for assessing dietary risk of cardiovascular disease within health risk appraisalsValerie B Duffy
Department of Allied Health Sciences, School of Allied Health, University of Connecticut, Storrs 06269 2101, USA
J Am Diet Assoc 107:237-45. 2007..Because cognitive research suggests that recalling food likes/dislikes may be simpler and more accurate than recalling intake, we tested whether a preference measure was predictive of cardiovascular disease risk factors within an HRA...
- Revisiting sugar-fat mixtures: sweetness and creaminess vary with phenotypic markers of oral sensationJohn E Hayes
Department of Nutritional Sciences, College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, University of Connecticut, KH 310, 358 Mansfield Road, Unit 2101, Storrs, CT 06269 2101, USA

- Psychophysics of sweet and fat perception in obesity: problems, solutions and new perspectivesLinda M Bartoshuk
Section of Otolaryngology, Department of Surgery, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT 06520 8041, USA
Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 361:1137-48. 2006..Genetic variation as well as taste pathology contribute to these results. These psychophysical advances will impact experimental as well as clinical studies of obesity and other eating disorders...
- Association between 6-n-propylthiouracil (PROP) bitterness and colonic neoplasmsMarc D Basson
Department of Surgery, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan, USA
Dig Dis Sci 50:483-9. 2005..In the subset reporting vegetable intake, men who tasted PROP as more bitter consumed fewer vegetables. These preliminary findings suggest that taste genetics may influence colon cancer risk, possibly through intake of vegetables...
- Supertasting and PROP bitterness depends on more than the TAS2R38 geneJohn E Hayes
Department of Nutritional Sciences, College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT 06269 2101, USA
Chem Senses 33:255-65. 2008..Variability in receptor expression may explain attenuated bitterness-FP relationships. PROP bitterness does associate with heightened taste sensations (i.e., supertasting), but this is not due to TAS2R38 polymorphisms...
- Sweet and bitter tastes of alcoholic beverages mediate alcohol intake in of-age undergraduatesSarah A Lanier
Dietetics Program, School of Allied Health, University of Connecticut, CT 06269 2101, USA
Physiol Behav 83:821-31. 2005..The college environment may attenuate direct effects of PROP bitterness and intake. Here, PROP bitterness does not predict alcohol intake directly, but acts instead through sweet and bitter tastes of alcoholic beverages...
