Ever since we were little kids, we have inadvertently trained our minds to filter out the metallic taste of everyday metal flatware from our food. And guess what? That inborn mental “filtering” process takes a LOT of other GOOD surrounding food tastes along with the bad metallic taste of our metal flatware.
Didn’t you ever wonder why a freshly picked fruit tastes so much better right off the tree? It’s not because it’s fresh as much as because it hasn’t been handled with our metal pots and pans or metal cookware and silverware yet. That incidental metal contact reacts with our food creating nasty tasting ions that our ion-receptor taste buds “taste” when eating any food that has come into contact with metal. It’s especially unavoidable if you use a metal knife, spoon or fork. (If you have any doubts, just try licking a bare metal spoon! Rather nasty metallic taste, isn’t it?). The same goes for plastic flatware too. Just try smelling a warm plastic spoon the next time you get some Chinese take-out soup! That’s the smell and taste of oils, plasticizers, formaldehyde and BPA leaching out of the plastic spoon. Ugh!
And guess what we instinctively do to “cover up” that metallic taste, why we dose just about everything we eat with fattening salad dressings, sauces, gravies, mayo, ketchup and many other not-so-good-for-us high calorie items!
So here’s the secret: Don’t use metal or plastic flatware when eating any food! Make a simple change in your lifestyle and make a WORLD of difference in your life! Use non-metallic TruFlavorWare® flatware because it “Simply makes Food taste Better!” And now you know “The other secret!”
