Salt in mouth

  1. Aug 2, 2005 #1
    What is wrong with our tongue I am wondering when we put so much salt used for daily cooking into our mouth ? Could you explain or suggest some materials about our tongue's main structural components that take part in creating such a salty taste ?

    Thankyou :wink:

    edit: well I figured out an answer right after posting the post that it is due to sensitivity, sense controlling cells existing on the tongue surface, which depends on each person for us to say what level of salty-ness s/he can reach in ....yehyeh...tasting the salt.
