A new study reveals that the material of your cutlery affects your food - so ditch the silver spoons, and opt for gold instead Being born with a silver spoon in your mouth may no longer be seen as a desirable characteristic after new research reveals silver spoons actually make your food taste bad. Determined to make the "best spoon in the world," Dr Zoe Laughlin, director of the Institute of Making, led a study to reveal which material made the best spoon for dining.

My sterling silverware does not effect the taste of food. This is ridiculous.
What about all those that eat with their fingers ? LOL
Silver was an early medicine. When people quit eating with real Silver silverware they started getting more ill.
That is why ice cream taste testers use gold spoons.
“I’m just mad about saffron, saffron’s mad about me...”
I dunno about making food taste bad, but they sure do make me fat!................
And frozen dairy product taste testers use plastic spoons. I bought some "frozen dairy product" the other day thinking I was buying ice cream. I need to start wearing my glasses in the grocery store.
The head taste tester at Dreyer’s Ice Cream uses a gold spoon. End of discussion.
Quite right slick
Ground up mummies were also an early medicine. Any studies on the harmful effects of cutting back on our mummy consumption?
Nothing ridiculous about it. Things have taste, and that taste becomes part of what you eat. I learned this while feeling lazy at a Japanese restaurant, I went with the silverware (which, of course was stainless not silver) and things just didn’t taste right, switched to the chopsticks and that little hint of woodiness put things back where they belong. Now if you use the same stuff all the time it’s part of your “default” flavor so you don’t notice it, kind of like how people with the same accent as you have no accent. But try a different set, you’ll notice a taste change, maybe for the better, maybe not, but it WILL change.
Do a side-by-side comparison of caviar with a silver spoon vs mother of pearl and get back to us, m’kay?
I’m glad I’m not the only one. Occasionally I’ll come home with something weird and hubby will say....wth is that?
I put my glasses on and say....it looked like so and so without my glasses. lol

Zombies for those that did not cut back.
Do a side-by-side comparison of fish heads, rice and nuoc-mam with a silver spoon vs bamboo chopsticks and get back to us, m’kay?
I knew this article would be a waste of time. What a waste of time. If your life ambition is to make the greatest spoon you need to reevaluate your life. I can’t even believe that an article was written on this. Then again I did read it, I feel sad now...
Bs. Silver kills bacteria/germs hence silverware.
No sterling, and I haven't noticed that stainless steel effects the taste of things much......or we are used to it.
After all garlic is pretty good at masking the taste of anything ";^)
