Denatonium benzoate is generally considered as having the most bitter taste of any compound known to man. Although denatonium benzoate has a powerful taste, it is colourless and odourless. The taste is so strong, however, that most people cannot tolerate a concentration of more than 30 parts per million of denatonium benzoate.
