N-Propylthiouracil (PROP) taste test paper test for the genetically controlled ability to taste this substance. PROP can taste bland, bitter or even vile depending upon how sensitive your taste buds are to this chemical. The bitter taste detected by some individuals, and its intensity, depends upon a homozygous dominant or heterozygous condition in the individuals tested.

PROP is often used in taste studies aimed at identifying Super Tasters.

N-Propylthiouracil test paper is perfectly safe to use. PROP is present at only 20 micrograms per strip. At this level, the compound is negligible and harmless.

Remove one N-Propylthiouracil test paper from the vial.
Stick out your tongue, and place the strip on your tongue.
There are three basic results: bland, bitter, or vile.
