I don't know if this belongs in here or in the nutrition, but its a health thing so I thought I'd try it here.<br><br>
For a while there were a number of things that I couldn't bear to eat because they had a very strong metalic taste to them. Just recently it dawned on me that I was probably anemic because I was unbelievably tired all the time. So I started a supliment and I now need only about 5-6 hours of sleep to wake up on my own, whereas before I needed about 12 before I'd wake on my own. I feel so much better!<br><br>
I just occured to me yesterday though that all these things that I couldn't stand before because they tasted metalic, don't anymore. My theory - however half-baked it may be - is that I was sensitive to the taste of iron (it was all food with iron in it that tasted bad) because I didn't have enough of it.<br><br>
Now I'm wondering (if this is a reasonable conclusion) if there is a deficiency that deals with salt. I'm really sensitive to the taste of salt. To give you an idea - the other day I made 4 loaves of bread. I used only a pinch of salt in that huge batch of dough, but now I can't eat the bread because it tasts salty to me. It isn't psychological, there are things that I would have no way of knowing if salt was in them and I can taste it there too.<br><br>
Thanks everyone <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

my mom had the same metal thing I think there are a variety of things that can cause it, mouth bacteria, too much stomach acide, dental work, tooth abscess.<br><br>
Her holistic doctor gave her acid paper to test her saliva as I think something like a more acidic mouth will make you taste metals.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Yes goiter is it why they add iodine? but what type of salt are you using maybe its an iodine sensitivity? they add it to most running salt you might want to try pure sea salt?<br><br>
I think your body ph balance is off, or if you have dental work it might be reacting to the metal in your mouth or your utensils, baking equipment.<br><br>
I'd also think of investing in a tongue scraper, and go to see your dentist.
