Product Overview

Zinc sulfate solution can be used to test for a possible zinc deficiency. Follow the steps outlined below for oral zinc taste testing. In addition, Zinc Sulfate, 7 Hydrate can be used for zinc supplementation. Each teaspoonful contains 1.5 mg zinc.

Oral Zinc Test

Hold a teaspoonful of the Zinc Sulfate solution in the mouth for 30 seconds and note the taste response from one of four categories:

  1. No specific taste or other sensation is noticed, even after 30 seconds.
  2. No immediate taste is noticed, but after a few seconds a slight taste described as dry, mineral, furry, or even sweet is noticed.
  3. A definite, although not strongly unpleasant, taste is noticed almost immediately and tends to intensify as the 30 seconds pass.
  4. A strong, unpleasant taste is noticed immediately and tends to intensify as the 30 seconds pass.

Individuals in category 1 or 2 might respond favorably to zinc supplementation.

Easy to use and interesting results!

To me it tasted like pure mineral water. Whereas my wife could hardly wait to get rid of it! I was advised that three months of Zinc Picolinate at 50MG daily should get me tasting it.

Thanks for your feedback!

I bought this to test my zinc levels ...

There are instructions online on how to use this liquid to test your zinc levels. I liked being able to do that on my own, at such a reasonable price, so that's why I bought it. You can supplement it by the tsp., and it tastes alright to me. It is such a big bottle, I don't know if I will ever buy it again though.

Thanks for your feedback!

Used this to check if my family was deficient in zinc. Not sure how reliable the test was but think we are deficient.

Thanks for your feedback!

Zinc Taste Test

Posted by Sprinkles on Aug 09, 2011 | Verified Purchase

We used this to do the "zinc taste test" to find out if we needed to take a zinc supplement or not. It worked just great! And for a very reasonable price, too.

Thanks for your feedback!

No taste but after a while I noticed a bitter taste.
