Saltyan Acquired Taste

A preference for strong, salty tastes is acquired, probably starting in childhood. It's the saltiness that people like, not the sodium. In fact, chloride in salt may have more to do with flavor than sodium does.

Except for the sensory experience, the body adjusts easily to eating less salt. Interestingly, when people gradually cut back and learn to go with less salt in their food choices, the desire for salty tastes declines, too. Over time, the less salt they consume, the less they want.

For taste perception, no other foods truly substitute for the taste of salt. Even salt substitutes, suggested for some people, don't give the same taste sensation. They may taste somewhat bitter or sharp.
