Phenylthiocarbamide has been used for genetics experiments in biology for over 60 years; if you can taste it, you'll know the moment it touches your tongue.

You can do taste test experiments in class or as a science fair project on heredity to determine who among your friends and classmates have inherited the gene for high sensitivity and might be supertasters.

How to use:

  • Take strip out of bottle
  • Stick out tongue
  • Place strip on tongue
  • 3 possible results: no response; slight bitter taste; revolting

Note (1): The number of strips per pack or vial is approximate.
Note (2): Keep out of sunlight.
Note (3): Phenylthiocarbamide is present in the amount of 3 to 5 micrograms per strip.

PTC is one of three different taste test strips available from stock.
