Only calcium and iron have been experimentally demonstrated

for "specific appetite."

It is possible that we learn to crave foods that give us some relief. I find myself craving fruit when I'm hungover. This is speculative, though.

The problem is that most nutrients don't have a taste, and a lot of foods have a lot of different nutrients.
