  • Pine nuts - aftertaste in everything I eat now

    Has anyone else experienced this? I ate pine nuts in my salad yesterday, and I've been noticing an aftertaste with everything I eat today. At first I was a little worried, but I checked around online and found quite a few posts/articles about it.

    No. That has never happened to me.

      Charlotte talked about this on her blog not too long ago:

        Huh, they never did that to me, but it's been a long time since I had them. I thought they mostly tasted like sunflower seeds, but for lots more money.

        But how interesting that it seems to be a new phenomenon.

          That's why I don't eat them anymore...;(

            I've read about the pine mouth problem with pine nuts from China. I've never had a problem with my pignolis from Italy.

              YES!!! I've not been able to touch them again, which is a shame. But everything and I mean everything tasted hideously bitter! Practially ruined certain foods for me. :P

              BTW - it took almost 2 weeks to completely go away.

                I got a bitter aftertaste a few times after eating pine nuts, which lasted anywhere from a couple of days to a week. It turned out it happens when nuts aren't fresh, so now I check expiry dates on packages and make sure they are fresh. Oh, and I never buy any food made/grown in China anymore (some of those nuts were from there).

                  I've read that, but these were pignolis from Trader Joe's. Its seriously ruining food for me right now.

                    They don't taste like sunflower seeds to me; they have a rather sweet (and extremely moreish) flavour. This is why I can't buy 'em - they don't last 5 seconds (maybe that's why I've never noticed an aftertaste!)

                      I just checked the bag - They're "Pignolis" from Trader Joe's and it reads "product of Russia and Korea." After looking around online I've seen posts from people blaming pine nuts from China and Korea.

                        Trader Joes is pretty secretive about sourcing but they get a lot from China. Check the bags of frozen veggies....the sesame crackers... I've found plenty from China. :/

                            I heard about this last year when I was vegetarian for a couple of months. The metallic taste when it happens is supposed to last a couple of weeks. I decided to avoid this by not eating any pine nuts.

                            There are a lot of nuts I prefer over pine nuts anyways so it was no biggie for me.

                              Just an update: I'm finally over this aftertaste thing. It took 8 days!

                              I'm convinced it was mainly due to quantity. I normally eat a couple in a salad or some pest, but last Wednesday I had a handful with sunflower seeds.
