# Do bases have a sour taste?

May 5, 2018

No...

#### Explanation:

Bases have a bitter and soapy taste. Of course you will NOT seek confirmation of this. The most basic thing we eat is quite probably egg-white, which has $p H = 8 - 9$. On the other hand, acidic foods, oranges, lemon, vinegar, tend to taste sharp and full of flavour, and good to eat.
