 Salt - Is It Good For You, Do We Need It?

When you were growing up were you told to avoid over salting your food?

Also known as sodium chloride, salt is a crystalline mineral made of 60% sodium and 40% chloride. It gets a bad rap sometimes—and there are risks to consuming too much salt—but research indicates that not eating enough salt is also a risk in itself.

Salt intake helps the brain and nerves perform essential functions such as sending electrical impulses and maintaining fluid balance and muscle function. Plus, most dietary salts are harvested from mineral-rich sources including salt mines and by evaporating seawater. And, in addition to flavouring your meal, salt serves as a preservative by preventing bacterial growth.


There is a vast difference in the quality of salts on the market today. A quick glance at the ingredients label on most salts might surprise you! Many salts contain anti-caking agents and even dextrose (sugar). Others have been heat processed and stripped of their natural trace minerals.

 

Regular Table Salt: Table salt is extracted from natural deposits and heated to 1,200° F. Since it’s a crushed product, the majority of its impurities and trace minerals are removed during processing. One thing to note is that regular table salt often includes additives called “anticaking agents” to keep clumps from forming, so it’s not as “natural” as it may seem. 

 

Himalayan Salt is rock salt (halite) mined from the Punjab region of Pakistan. The salt often has a pinkish tint due to mineral impurities. It is primarily used as a food additive as table salt however it is also used as a material for cooking and food presentation.

 

Redmonds Real Salt sea salt on the other hand, is unrefined and full of natural minerals and flavour – the way salt was meant to be savoured.

So salt is good for you, we all need it and should use it everyday just be mindful of which you buy

Stay Healthy

Liver - Yummy or Yucky!!!

Known as a "Superfood" whether it's Lamb, Pig, Calves or Chicken and very affordable

I was watching a programme the other day and it seems Liver is making a comeback. Why???

So what is in Liver, why is it good for us

Vitamin B12:  Vitamin B12 helps the formation of red blood cells and DNA. It is also involved in healthy brain function

Vitamin A:  Vitamin A is important for normal vision, immune function and reproduction. It also helps organs like the heart and kidneys function properly 

Riboflavin (B2):  Riboflavin is important for cellular development and function. It also helps turn food into energy 

Folate (B9):  Folate is an essential nutrient that plays a role in cell growth and the formation of DNA 

Iron: Iron is another essential nutrient that helps carry oxygen around the body. The iron in liver is heme iron, the kind most easily absorbed by the body

Copper: Copper acts like a key to activate a number of enzymes, which then help regulate energy production, iron metabolism and brain function 

Choline: Liver provides all of the Adequate Intake (AI) for women and nearly all of it for men.  Choline is important for brain development and liver function


Some people just can't stand to even look at Liver, I get it.  Personally I follow a Ketogenic diet including Liver and I do believe that taste buds change as we change our diets so don't rule it out completely until you have given it a chance, these days people are looking to be as healthy as possible, maybe try some Liver Pate (or even better make your own), Liverwurst, Liver Mousse or cut it up finely and add it to soup or stews etc.
