Coping with a Bitter 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.
  • Balance a bitter 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 sā€‹ā€‹o to see if tastes better because tastes can continue to change. Be sure to choose foods that taste good to you
  • If you are dealing with a sore or dry mouth, moisten food by adding olive oil, sauce, broth, sour cream, gravy or cream soup.
