What’s With the Gluten-Free Metallic Taste?

What is with this metallic taste?

Please tell me.  If you happen to be an experienced gluten-free baker, please tell me why are our baked items coming up metallic?  You can almost see a silvery sheen in the light!

Jessie has tried several batches of cornbread which turned out metallic.  We threw out the flour and started again.  It only happens with gluten-free recipes.  It’s not the oven or the baking dish.  The same thing happened when she tried baking brownies.  

I am beginning to wonder if xanthan gum may be a common denominator. However, what do we use as a substitute?  We are calling out into the worldwide web searching for a solution to our dilemma?  Any thoughts out there in gluten-free internet land?
