When asked on TV or the Internet, "Have you seen a special feature on" strong taste trends "?", 31% of the respondents answered "I have seen it", which is one in three people. Percentage. Furthermore, when asked at supermarkets and convenience stores, "Do you feel that the lineup of products that claim" strong taste "has increased?", 50% answered "feel", and half of the respondents said that they usually do. It is also clear that he has realized a "strong taste trend" from the time of shopping.
