It could be a textural issue. My DS would do the gagging thing and actually make himself vomit at times. It's incredibly frustrating to deal with that. On the bright side, my mom said for about a year the only thing my brother would eat was American cheese. The Ped said, 'if that's all he'll eat, then give it to him. He won't die'.
I know that's not what you want to hear, but this is likely something he will get past. Maybe take him for an evaluation and get him cleared for any other issues that may affect taste.
