Yesterday was interesting, I received in the mail the sample of the new vitamin/mineral mix. I made a 1 day batch, split it between 3 blender bottles and put it in the fridge for 3 hours. When it finally came time to taste it I was disappointed to get a definite metallic aftertaste. My best guess (based on past experience) is it’s caused by the magnesium chloride that I had them use instead of the magnesium citrate. The plan was to help the potential tummy issues (that’s the technical term” of new users by using something besides magnesium citrate. The mixing place can’t get malate and I’ve tried glycinate and it had the same metallic taste as what I’m getting now. I could have tried taurate too but it’s supposed to similarly have the same strong taste. So I’ve requested a re-formulation and a new sample. Will add a week or more to the process.

Didn’t have time to run last night, probably because we were mixing Keto Chow from 4 until 10 last night. But hey: we got 65 weeks and 84 days of Peanut Butter mixed (to name a few).

I think I may have figured out the trick to getting correct readings on the Ketonix, I’ll have to wait until my levels are higher though (which should be easier now that the Jalapeno Poppers are all gone).
