Taste preferences between two fluid sources were measured:
  • NaCl solution vs. water, using concentrations of 75, 150, 300, and 450 mM
  • KCl solution vs. water, using concentrations of 10, 30, 100, 200, and 300 mM
  • CaCl2 solution vs. water, using concentrations of 3, 10, 30, and 100 mM
  • NH4Cl solution vs. water, using concentrations of 10, 30, 100 and 300 mM
For each solution and concentration, intake was measured over a 48h period, and preference ratios (solution vs. water) computed. These preference ratios (%) are presented as MPD measurements.

Procedures conducted:
• body weight  Body weight during testing.
• bottle choice test  Various salt solutions (several concentrations) vs. water.
