Flavour or flavor refers to the distinct taste that our sense of taste perceives in food or drinks, often determined by the combination of smell, texture and taste sensation on the tongue. It can be natural or artificially created and is a key aspect of how we experience and enjoy what we consume. The principal tastes are sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and umami, but the overall flavour experienced can be influenced by additional factors such as aroma, temperature, and mouthfeel.
