Mixtures of artificial sweeteners can change what we taste, and a new study explains how.

Scientists have long known that any artificial sweeteners have a bitter ‘off-taste,’ but when two are combined they taste less bitter. 

This new study explains that two artificial sweeteners, saccharin and cylamate, each block the taste receptors that make the other taste bitter.

This means that when you eat or drink something with artificial sweeteners, they could be keeping you from tasting other bitter flavors in the rest of your meal.
