GUEST,Helen, cookieless BS: should pepperoni taste like soap? (54* d) RE: BS: should pepperoni taste like soap? 29 Oct 09

Hi Virginia,

Over the past few weeks I have been suffering from a persistent soapy taste, a tingly tongue, and associated queasiness. I cannot pin it down to any particular food, or anything specific that I have done. Yesterday my hubby told me he had the soapy taste too.

I did a bit of Googling and came up with no hard and fast answers, except that excess fluoride can have a soapy taste as a symptom.

What I did figure out, though, from my "research" is that as soap is an alkali, and alkali is counterbalanced by acid, if I drink water with a bit of lemon juice or vinegar in it, or even if I take a couple of Vitamin C tablets it seems to make the soapy taste go away.

I'm suspecting the cause may be some vaguely undefined tummy bug or something. But at least I have found a way to relieve the problem.

Maybe that's why wine might help.
