Now you can already find beautiful red tomatoes in the markets. But they are all greenhouse tomatoes. Such a product has a somewhat artificial taste without a pronounced tomato flavor. All this is due to the insufficient amount of sun. But this does not mean that such fruits should be abandoned altogether because the taste of tomatoes can be improved at home.

A well-known Ukrainian chemist Gleb Repich (glebrepich) on his Instagram page told how to improve the taste of greenhouse tomatoes. Sugar can help with this.


The gum example.

The expert notes that if you take the gum and chew it for a long time, the flavor is lost. But if you dip the gum in sugar, the flavor reappears. In fact, the sweet taste of gum didn't go anywhere; it's just that sugar has the ability to intensify the sense of flavor.
