The senses of taste and smell work closely together. A perfect example of this is when you have a cold. When your nose is stuffed up, you may complain that you can’t taste food. It somehow loses its flavor. That’s because we actually rely on our sense of smell to distinguish the majority of foods. We can detect approximately ten thousand different odors. However, we can only taste five things: sweet, salty, bitter, sour, and umami (Biel and Peske 2009).
