During a prospective, open labeled, three-way crossover trial that compared the efficacy and palatability of a charcoal cookie vs standard aqueous charcoal product in 2010, how much more palatable was the charcoal cookie was compared to the aqueous charcoal, if at all?
The activated charcoal cookie was rated more than twice as palatable than the aqueous product on a 5 point rating scale. 2.32 vs 1.08 respectively.
