Funny taste of food

Yesterday I was eating a piece of bread and chestnut paste and could not finish it....it tasted soapy, as did the milk I was having with it. I just tried a bit of a bought asparagus sauce (unusual for me but DH is a way and I thought convenience food might be a good option for me today and tomorrow) anyway, that taste kind of soapy/meatlic to me. Is strange taste a health concern, a symptom of anything?

I just tried a cookie and that tasted ok....but my mouth is still a bit soapy tasteing from before...

Is it possible that you used a utensil, plate or glass that wasn't rinsed enough?

I've had that years ago the (Metallic taste) think it was either from by stomach or teeth- not sure. But, it just went away on its on. Sorry not much help.

Some women find that things taste different when they're pregnant...

If I'm getting sick (and my nose is starting to get plugged up, even though I might not consciously notice it) my sense of smell does strange things, and that does strange things to my sense of taste. One day I thought to myself, "This is strange... everything tastes like bananas..." A couple of days later, I was carrying nose tissue everywhere.

OMG Snoop! Really? I think I remember my mother sayin that too, er, ok.
I have a specific "cold" smell/taste that I get a few days before a cold, this one is not that.

if you are taking a medication or an antibiotic it can really change the way you taste food.

A French research paper on taste and smell perception among pregnant women:

CAT.INIST.FR

If you have a look on the web, you'll find researchers who suggest the sense of taste alters to encourage healthy eating.

Mind you, this could of course be all rubbish and I could just be getting you all excited/worried over nothing!
