    Bitter taste after eating pine nuts

    Has anyone else experienced this? I have now had it happen twice after eating pine nuts, where everything I eat leaves a bitter aftertaste. I didn't know what the cause was, but Google is my friend and apparently I am not alone in this. Weird. I can't wait until it goes away! It has lasted about 4 days so I am hoping I can get over it soon. ANNOYING!

    Can't believe I found this in a gun forum! I had the same problem and couldn't figure out what the problem was. Thanks for your post.

    Risks of eating pine nuts

    A small minority of pine nuts can cause taste disturbances, developing 1–3 days after consumption and lasting for days or weeks. A bitter, metallic taste is described. Though very unpleasant, there are no lasting effects. This phenomenon was first described in a scientific paper in 2001. Some publications have made reference to this phenomenon as "pine mouth". This is a relatively new phenomenon and appears to be most common in nuts coming from China. It has been theorized that the nut trees are absorbing something and passing it on to the nuts, or the nuts themselves are being treated with something before packaging. It is also possible that the nuts have spoiled and are rancid, however the foul flavor is metallic and not rancid. Also, it has been hypothesized that this bitter side effect is caused by an allergy that some people may have to pine nuts, but this does not explain the recent appearance of this syndrome. Metallic taste disturbance known as metallogeusia, are reported 1–3 days after ingestion, being worse on day 2 and lasting for up to 2 weeks. Cases were self-limited and resolve without treatment.---From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Weird, but good to know. I was going to recommend swishing with two shots of vodka, on the hour, until the symptoms resolve.

    If I ate pine nuts, this would concern me. How many different things made in China have been recalled recently because of lead content or other nasty stuff?

    My only suggestion: Don't eat anything that originates from China.

    Don't eat what originates in China and try if at all possible to not buy what originates in China. Of course nowadays that is almost impossible.

    Let's see, calamity caused with imported wallboard; calamity caused with imported tires; just two examples of where there has been great hidden cost to importing from them.

    Old Ross Perot was prescient.

    OMG, I want to change my forum name to Pine Mouth, I don't know why, but that strikes me as really funny!

    My uncle had the same symptoms before he died.

    You have probably ingested some sort of chinese bio weapon. You will be a zombie by next week. It was nice knowing you.
