A food taster was an individual who sampled food or beverages being served to another person in order to determine if it contained poisons or other harmful substances. Such a service was typically performed for persons of importance or under threat of harm, such as government officials.

Cooks who were servants of the Acamarian Sovereign had the duty of being food tasters. Yuta performed this role for Sovereign Marouk in 2366. (TNG: "The Vengeance Factor")

Maihar'du, among other roles, served as a food taster for Grand Nagus Zek. (DS9: "The Nagus")
