When every drop becomes divine!

Soup

Power of soup

“Soup puts the heart at ease, calms down the violence of hunger, eliminates the tension of the day, and awakens and refines the appetite”
Auguste Escoffier

Food for thought

Do you add salt to the soup as you are cooking or do you add salt as the soup is being served?

Which is better?

And why?

Salt and food dishes

There is no taste if the food lacks salt.

Don’t you agree?

“Salt is the only product that changes cuisine.

There’s a big difference between food that has salt and food without it.

If you don’t believe that, ask people who can’t eat salt”

Ferran Adria

What is salt in our daily life?

Very simple answer.

“Disappointment is often the salt of life” Theodor Parker

Sad but true. But it can be a motivational factor too!

Salt in a positive way in our life

“Rivers don’t drink their own waters; trees don’t eat their own fruits. The salt seasons the soup in order to have its purpose fulfilled. Live for others!”

Israelmore Ayivor

Nowadays nobody has time or patience to live for others.

Salt and food industry

The food industry makes you addicted to either salt or sweets.

You are ready to blame them but you won’t accept the fact that you lack the willpower to control your taste buds.

Knowingly, you are dumping salt into your body system.

We all know excess salt is harmful to the body.

How much salt is too much?

The American heart association recommends that an adult consumes no more than 2.3 g of sodium (5.75 g of salt) per day.

Always check the salt content in packaged or prepared food from the labels.

“Each year, food companies use an amount of salt that is every bit as staggering as it sounds: 5 billion pounds”
Michael Moss

  1. Adding salt – that would depend on whether a stock cube was used because stock cubes contain salt. So assuming I’d used a cube I would wait until the soup was almost done, taste it and then seasoning if it was needed. Thank you, Philo

  2. I tend to add salt at I cook. Tasting as I go. But sometimes I forget to add it. With herbs and other ingredients, sometimes it’s not necessary.

    And I agree, a hot bowl of soup works wonders
