“Why does your mom taste like a savory?"/"Because she’s umami.”

"Umami” (savory taste) sometimes sounds like “your mommy.” A joke was posted on Reddit—Dad Jokes on December 28, 2017:

Q: Why does your mom taste like a savory?
A: Because she’s umami.



Wikipedia: Umami
Umami (/uˈmɑːmi/), or savory taste, is one of the five basic tastes (together with sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness). It has been described as brothy or meaty.

People taste umami through taste receptors that typically respond to glutamate. Glutamate is widely present in meat broths and fermented products, and commonly added to some foods in the form of monosodium glutamate (MSG). Since umami has its own receptors rather than arising out of a combination of the traditionally recognized taste receptors, scientists now consider umami to be a distinct taste.
