Hate broccoli, cauliflower? There could be a scientific reason...

24 Sep 2021  |  www.4bc.com.au
New research has found that vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage can emit a bitter taste and foul-smelling gas when mixed with a child's saliva and mouth bacteria, a reaction that also occurs in some adults. Food scientist Damian Frank discovered that individuals with certain oral bacteria break down sulfur-containing compounds, releasing stinky sulfur volatiles. This reaction is consistent among children and adults, but varies from person to person. Children with higher bacterial activity tend to dislike cauliflower more. Frank suggests trying different preparation methods, such as panfrying or steaming, to make these nutritious vegetables more palatable.
