|Sweet taste is heavy, moist, and cooling by nature.
Sugary foods are most commonly associated with this taste. Sweet taste is also found in milk and milk products, most grains, many legumes, sweet fruits, and certain cooked vegetables (such as carrots, sweet potatoes, and beets).
Sweet naturally increases bulk, moisture, and weight in the body.
For this reason, sweet taste is excellent for building the body’s seven vital tissues of plasma, blood, fat, muscles, bones, marrow, and reproductive fluids. Sweet flavors increase saliva, sooth mucous membranes and burning sensations, relieve thirst, and have beneficial effects on the skin, hair, and voice.
