This research was a preliminary study that tested 220 low-income mothers of one-year-old infants enrolled in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) and Early Head Start (EHS) for their ability to taste a harmless chemical, 6-n-propylthiouracil (PROP), in relation to responses about the emotional investment they experience towards their infant. Additional questionnaires assessed adult attachment, breastfeeding, and close physical contact as possible mediators and moderators in the association between parent investment and PROP taste sensitivity. A theory was hypothesized for these associations
Findings were statistically significant, although in the opposite direction than hypothesized. Non-tasters of PROP, rather than tasters, had higher overall parent investment responses than tasters. Non-tasters also rated higher than tasters in secure adult attachment attitudes. Close physical contact related to increased parent investment. There was no relation between taste sensitivity and duration of breastfeeding or between taste sensitivity and close physical contact
