Did you hate eating Brussels sprouts when you were growing up but don’t mind them now?
Your taste buds didn’t change, Brussels sprouts did!
Scientists discovered that the brussels sprouts we ate in the ’90s and earlier were more BITTER than the ones we eat today.
The scientists in the Netherlands finally figured out what chemical compounds made Brussels sprouts SO bitter and they were able to cross-pollinate some seeds without those compounds to grow ones that tasted better. And that’s what we still eat today.
