Where exactly are taste buds located?

Taste buds are everywhere on the tongue. Some areas of the tongue have more taste buds than the others though.

For example, the tip of the tongue tastes sweet things e.g. Chocolates. Just to the right and left of the tip are the salty taste buds. After the salty ones are the sour ones.

At the very back of tongue, the tongue tastes the bitter things. The middle of the tongue has only a few taste buds.

MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY

Taste receptors are located on taste buds from the tongue called papillae. There are 4 types of papillae:

1. Filiform

2. Fungiform

3. Foliate

4. Circumvallate

Taste buds are located only on the Fungiform, Foliate and Circumvallate papillae only!

The center of the tongue has few taste buds. Babies have more taste buds than older children and adults. Not only do babies have taste buds on the tongue, but also on the sides and roof of the mouth.
