# How do bases taste? Are there exceptions to this typical property?

But, it is a fact that most of the things that we eat that taste good, i.e. wine, beer, cheese, butter, are all slightly acidic (i.e. their $p H$ is slightly below $6$).
The most basic thing that we eat is quite probably egg white, $p H \cong 8.5$. The soapiness and sliminess of eggwhite are quite typical of a base.
