Salt Makes Watermelon Taste Sweeter: MYTH

Well, technically, this is true, but salt doesn’t actually make your watermelon sweeter; instead it plays a role in creating a sweeter watermelon, McKeller says. The science behind this is that when you add salt to anything, it draws out the moisture, so drawing out a watermelon’s water content makes it denser, its flavors more intense, and in most cases, sweeter. Another side effect of adding salt to your watermelon is that salt makes you salivate, so your watermelon tastes juicier and more flavorful with every bite.
