Abstract

Impedance changes in phospholipid LB (Langmuir-Blodgett) and protein-mixed phospholipid LB films by several taste substances were measured. The resistance of the phospholipid LB film increased by bitter and sweet substances, whereas the resistance decreased for salty, sour and umami substances. For sweetness the larger change was observed in the protein-mixed phospholipid LB film, and hence discrimination between sweetness and bitterness was possible.
