Not extending answer because of a completely different context.

If these were not food-safe/toy-safe bins, it is likely softeners/plasticizers from the plastic materials gassing out and migrating into the ingredients. These can be phtalates or other petrochemical/organic compounds, and if in doubt, they are as unsafe in food as gasoline would be. I certainly would not want to give anything that has taken on enough of ...

Pasta dough should be smooth in texture and be only slightly sticky. When kneading it out and folding it over onto itself, it should not readily re-stick to itself, but rather require a bit more kneading to do so. It should feel slightly tacky (less so than a post-it note) but not aggressively stick to your hands or the counter. If you get it too dry and ...

If you like it, eat and enjoy it without a care as to what it is.

I was wondering the same thing, and then I thought about it and this is the way that I do it... One cup of cooked spaghetti noodles is one portion. One plate or half of 2-cup bowl is about 1 cup or 125g of spaghetti noodles. Unless you really are hungry you probably cannot eat more than 2 whole portions. fyi... 1 portion of noodles is about 200 ...

It has to do with Osmosis (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osmosis). The saltier the water the less water gets pulled in by the pasta. Adding salt will keep your pasta nice and firm and not too bloated. That is also why you should never drink distilled water in Chemistry class. The exact opposite will happen, since there are no Salts in distilled water, your ...
