Zinc Tester may provide a simple method for evaluating zinc status. After placing 10 mL of Zinc Tester in the mouth, a lack of taste or a delayed taste perception suggests a possible zinc insufficiency. An immediate taste perception suggests zinc status may be adequate.
Water Taste: 0%
Dry Taste: 5-10%
Metallic Taste: 20-40%
Wet Cardboard Taster: 60-80%
Rotten Egg Taste: 100%
