Certain types of cancer treatment can cause a metallic taste in the mouth. This can be really unpleasant and can affect your ability to enjoy food and mealtimes. One solution that has been found to work for many people is using non-metallic utensils and cutlery for preparation and eating. Using non-metallic cutlery means the metallic taste is not able to be introduced and is, therefore, less likely to overwhelm the other flavours in the mouth.
If you’ve been struggling with a metallic taste in your mouth as a result of cancer treatment, Bamboo Cutlery might be the simple solution you need. The 4 pieces of cutlery is presented in a handy travel pouch, meaning you can take it out and about with you.
