    Oleogustus

    "When we think about the way things taste, we often assign them one of the five basic descriptors: sweet, salty, sour, bitter, or umami (savory). But, back in 2015, scientists at Purdue University labeled a sixth basic taste: fat. The fat-centric flavor, also known as oleogustus, contains a high level of fatty acids and is the category foods like butter, lard, and ghee exist within. While an oleogustus food alone might not sit too well on the tongue, the magic happens when it’s combined with another of the basic tastes. Take a bite of a fatty piece of bacon, that combination of salt, umami, and oleogustus and your taste buds explode from a burst of a porky perfection. That first bite is often so good, it feels like your taste buds have just hit the jackpot. So it’s only natural that chefs and home cooks would find ways to use it as a menu’s secret weapon."

    And here I thought that Oleogustus was a rather rotund Roman general...
