Burnt Orange For Covid Tiktok trend emerged after people experienced one of COVID-19’s most aggravating side effects, a persistent loss of smell and taste.
Most covid patients were dissatisfied with the significant side effect of loss of taste and smell, so they began to experiment with alternative home remedies, one of which is eating burnt orange.
Another dubious set of videos claims that eating a burnt orange will help with taste loss caused by COVID-19, but this has not been scientifically proven, and many experts believe it could be a coincidence. Those who claim the burnt orange method worked may have lingering smell and taste abilities.

“Burnt Orange For Covid” Tiktok: What Does It Mean?
Burnt Orange For Covid has become a trending video after many people experienced the most frustrating side-effects of COVID-19. And according to one user, if you burn orange and eat it, the smell and taste will return.
To attempt to regain their senses, they place an orange directly on their stove’s heating element until it turns black, then peel it, mash it up, and add brown sugar.
They show footage of them eating other fruits after they finish the mixture, with apparent expressions of delight on both of their faces.
A professional doctor commented on this trend, stating that this trick appears to be simply precise because there is no scientific proof yet.
