Ayurveda considers six tastes- sweet, sour, salt, bitter, pungent and astringent. Taste is perceived by tongue. Each of these tastes may be predominant in medicinal plants, minerals and food. Each taste contains two basic constituents or elements in higher quantity. For example, sweet material contains water and earth in higher levels and that is the reason why the habit of excessive sweet intake causes weight gain, or increased Kapha.

Ayurvedic principles say sweet, sour and salty materials cause reduction or alleviation of Vata dosha similarly other tastes have an effect on other two humors such as Pitta and Kapha. After the assessment of symptoms and dosha involved, physician suggests medicines and food with required tastes to correct imbalance of humors or doshas.
