Class 6 took part in a whole class experiment to see if they were supertasters using by counting the number of fungiform papillae (dots on their tongue)
Shot glasses Card with a hole punched in it
Damp paper towels/ cups of water
They put the blue dye on their tongues, poked their tongues through the hole in the card and the dots were counted
0-5 fungiform papillae = Non taster
6-10 fungiform papillae = Taster
11+ fungiform papillae = Supertaster
Class 6 were mostly supertasters!
