you know when something tastes salty because it contains sodium chloride solution...
which part actually triggers the "salty" tastebuds, or are both needed? Like if for some reason you tasted some potassium chloride, would it still be salty tasting? (some "lo-salt" type things use potassium instead of (much of?) the sodium i think? so maybe this would work?)
or if you had say sodium fluoride, would that work? what abou a similar compound that contained neither like potassium fluoride (or some such?)

Whilst searching for an answer to your question I first stumbled across an article entitled 'Mmmmm semen''..
.anyway, I eventually found this which isn't great either
