Description: We tested the hypothesis that salt appetite increases in summer heat due to increased sodium loss due to increased drink ing and perspiration. A test battery in the same sample of healthy young people tested in summer and winter revealed no seasonal differences in salt appetite (or fluid intake) despite a 10 °C rise in mean environmental temperature. Unexpectedly, sweet preference is reduced in summer. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd
