How to remove excess salt from your food

Remove excess salt from your food

You are about to receive your guests, make a delicious soup or a good salad, but you realize that you have put too much salt.

Is there a trick to help correct seasoning and avoid food waste?

Of course I do!

In the broth you only have to add slices of raw and peeled potatoes, let it cook for a few minutes and that’s it!

The potato will absorb all the excess salt in your soup.

Did you know that?

Did you know that salt consumed in excess is one of the main causes of high blood pressure, a condition that causes the arteries to lose elasticity making them more rigid making it difficult for the heart and kidneys to work.

The kidneys are responsible for filtering and purifying the blood, they accumulate sodium and an excess of it can cause long-term malfunction. Excess salt predisposes to the formation of stones and kidney stones.

Salt also favours the appearance of certain types of tumours, such as stomach cancer, as very salty food irritates and erodes the stomach walls.

Another problem is that the more sodium that is eliminated, the more calcium is also eliminated, which decreases the amount of calcium in the bones and leads to a greater tendency to osteoporosis.

The high concentration of salt affects the functioning of the kidneys, disrupting the balance of sodium and potassium. Your body begins to accumulate fluid and you begin to feel swelling, especially in your legs and face.

A high concentration of salt favours the development of diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA).
