Why Fats Can Be Necessary at Times?

People nowadays are extremely careful of what they eat, how much calories, or fats it has, how it was made and more. They are very cautious of what they put inside their body and the food industry is realising the growing market in this health cautious public and using this factor to introduce new and unique types of products that are made all natural, fat free and low calorie and more.

But, what people do not realise is that just because a product says its fat free doesn’t necessarily means that its healthy, it also doesn’t mean it’s not healthy, but just looking at the label is not enough. One needs to properly read though the whole thing, see if this is something they require, based on their current diet, one should figure out what is it they are lacking or what they are overdoing, and then after making sure that one has thought of all this, should they make a decision on what to purchase.

Also, many times, people think that just cutting off all fats and calorie diet can turn one to be fit. That is a very grave misconception most have, that is not true. For instance, many think mayonnaise sauce is bad for health, and although that is true, but if one takes it in moderation then like any other food item, mayonnaise can also make a drab meal enjoyable. Mayonnaise is high in fat, but not saturate fat, so if taken in small portion and not included in the regular diet, then it doesn’t have to be a bad thing.

Another misconception if of salad dressing in India especially. People think salad dressing has to be plain and boring and tasteless, but that is not the case. Healthy ingredients and perhaps even fruits and exotic oils and flours can be added to give it enough taste so that the salad doesn’t remain bland.

• What does a mayonnaise sauce recipe contain?

A mayonnaise sauce recipe contains four main ingredients which are: oil, vinegar, egg yolk and lemon juice. The commercial mayonnaise cups contain about 70-85% fat and these ingredients are good at fighting lice.

• How does a mayonnaise help in treatment?

If you’re a science student, you’d understand this- Oil has viscosity properties and hence, it helps in suffocating lice and nymphs. If you’re not a science student, you need not worry about the technicalities. Just know that it does help!

• How to use mayonnaise on head?

Apply mayonnaise on head and keep it overnight, or for 8 hours. Then, use shampoo to wash it off. You would see multiple dead lice on the floor. Repeat the process for a better result. Use a high fat mayonnaise for the process because low amount of oil may not be enough!

• Does mayonnaise also kill lice eggs?

The oil in the mayonnaise works on lice whereas the vinegar and lemon juice work on their eggs. While mayonnaise is not that effective in killing live lice eggs, I suggest that you still give it a try. Something is better than nothing and killing lice is a good start!

Food For Thought: Kettle Chips

We have been brought up on deliciously crispy, thin, pale-yellow and exceedingly salty, potato chips, quite literally. And that’s quite an image that conjures up every time anybody mentions ‘crispy potato chips’. Because that’s exactly the way potato chips should be- subtle, and tasting only of potato and salt.

Or is it?Bector Food- Cremica- Crispy Potato Chips

Enter Kettle chips India. Defeating the usual standards for potato chips preparation, kettle chips are churned out in batches rather than at one go in a continuous flow machine. There were days when kettle chips were produced within four walls of the ‘mom’s kitchen’. Today, the innovation of the late has been channelled by commercial manufacturers and has been put to use for commercial dividends.

The ‘batch’ method is one of the major things that set kettle chips apart from the normal chips. The idea is to cook potato chips slowly under low heat and pressure settings. Presumably, the cooking process is carried out in a large kettle; whether a kettle is used always or not is a question of preference. Potato chips are cooked in small groups, huddled together from drying till frying process.

It’s hard to entertain the idea of gobbling down potato chips that don’t look like them at all, and that’s the problem with kettle chips. Thicker in texture and punctuated with potato peels to lend an unusual texture, kettle chips somehow don’t fit the bill. Unlike the normal potato chips, these are not doused in salt and have a golden-ish colour that is largely a result of the caramelization of natural sugars.

A flip side to the chips that have been infamously labelled ‘unusual chips’ have one great thing to offer- crunch. And crunch is something that we all pine for, isn’t it?

To some, the very texture ad semblance of kettle chips might be repulsive and odd, yet, that they are relatively healthier and offer a taste of the unconventional is good enough to have them tried.
