Which part of the brain controls taste?


Wiki User

Actually, no part of the brain controls taste. The sense of smell is mostly what your sense taste comes from. Before u put the food into your mouth, your nose smells it. It is also smelling it while it is in your house. I believe your actual tongue can only taste sweet, sour, and salty. If u ever have time, when you're eating something hold your nose and keep ur nose held for a few seconds. Taste anything? Now let it go. U should definitely be able to taste it now. :) hope that helped.
