PTC

We just did a lab involving this in my AP Biology class, and now I'm curious. Many of you probably have no idea what I'm talking about and that's okay, but on the off chance that someone does, I figured I'd post this.

Can you taste phenylthiocarbamide (PTC)?

Yes
14(13.0%)
No
15(13.9%)
Never been tested
46(42.6%)
Pheniwhat now???
32(29.6%)
Something else
1(0.9%)


(FWIW, non-tasters and those who haven't tried it yet aren't missing anything good. The stuff is nasty and bitter.)
