Coping with a Salty Taste:
- Common taste changes that people may experience during and after cancer treatment can include having a bad taste or food tasting too bitter, metallic, salty, sweet or bland.
- If foods taste too salty, balance it by choosing products labelled as low sodium, reduced sodium, sodium free, no added salt.
- Balance a salty taste by adding something sweet such as honey, maple syrup, fruit, dried fruit (dates or raisins)
- It's important to experiment. If you tried a food that didn't taste good, try it again in a month or so to see if tastes better because tastes can continue to change. Be sure to choose foods that taste good to you
