Q. why does food taste differently when your nose is blocked?-3mks
Asked by deepitapai | 06 Jun, 2008, 11:24: AM
Expert Answer

A lot of the flavour of food comes in through the nose. When you chew, chemicals are released into your mouth and some go up the back of your throat into your nose. Your tongue is not as refined at telling flavours apart, so your nose is an important part of tasting. When you have a cold, your nose gets blocked up and the chemicals from the food can’t get through. This is why food can taste bland or different.
