It means you have to take the taste test to find out.

Right now if you get SWAMI run on you your practitioner should have the taste strips to do the test since it is an input to the program.

Do all BTD Practitioners have access to SWAMI software? Or is it a specialized thing? Any idea of the cost to get tested?

I assume any BTD practitioner can purchase the SWAMI use rights.

The cost to run it would be up to the practitioner and I assume would be dependent on what measurements the practitioner makes.

I am a super-taster  

It tasted quite bitter at first... but then the bitterness grew to an intolerable degree. I had to eat a mint to kill the taste... but it didn't really work. I was stuck with that bitter taste for a loooong time.

I know that there is a gene component for taster/non-taster but wouldn't the number of taste buds... particularly the ones along the sides of the tongue that detect bitterness... have an impact as well? Just curious...

Bitter taste receptor proteins in the taste buds of the tongue that recognise PTC are encoded on chromosome locus 7 q35-6...

I interpreted that to mean that the Prop/PTC Taster genes are what determine the number of "Bitter taste receptor proteins in the taste buds of the tongue".

I wonder if being a taster has something to do with green beans and such. They did a study and found that some kids really did have a terrible taste from certain veggies and it wasn't just because they didn't want to eat them.

Huuuum.  Yeahhhh.  As a child I could not stand bell peppers.  They were so bitter to me they made me gag.  I could taste them in anything.

But what does it matter whether you can taste it or not?  Does it mean anything as far as the BTD goes, or life in general, or is it just something interesting to know?

I have to admit that I clicked on it and was so soon interrupted by a crying child that I clicked back out and just posted.  I'm sorry.  I'll go read it.

I bet Im super taster.  I prefer bland foods.  I can taste the difference in different varieties of rice.  I hate hot & spicy.   One of the most unpleasant effects of quitting smoking is that tastes come though stronger.  The list of foods that I can tolerate eating goes down.

I don't think that PROP tasting has anything to do with general taste capability.

I have looked around on the web a bit and found information referring to super-tasters, normal tasters and non-tasters.  Are there three degrees of tastiness or two, taster and non-taster?  Is it necessary to know three levels of tastiness?

Yes there is three levels of tasters, If you are doing a Swami it works with the software.
