The most common taste complaint is phantom taste perceptions. Some people can detect no tastes at all, but true taste loss is rare, and the perceived loss usually reflects a smell loss. Some patients suffer from distortion of taste, such as detecting a foul taste from a substance that is normally pleasant. Taste and smelling disorders are rare. They occur in about 7 % of the population. And then it mostly is a smelling disorder in stead of tasting disorder.
