This article summarizes new knowledge about the contribution of genetic variation to person-to-person differences underlying some sensory aspects of dietary fatty acids. Receptors on the taste cells of the human tongue arise from genes that have marked variation in DNA sequence, which, in some cases, is associated with differences in how these lipids in foods are perceived. These perceptual differences may affect food selection.
