comment Barium and aluminum in Teff?
Yeah, Aluminium is a very heavy metal :-). Most things we eat aren't pure, they are complex compounds. Most compounds we eat are not toxic, even those containing Aluminium and Barium

comment How efficient is stock for protein extraction?
No idea, it just does. Have read that before. Check the amount of fat you skim from expected amount of fat in nutritional data

comment How efficient is stock for protein extraction?

comment How do I make instant chocolate powder from a chocolate bar?
The problem with using chocolate bar as a drink, is that it contain a high percentage of cacao fat, which is generally not nice in a drink (sort of like bacon grease floating about on top of your drink). Chocolate powder for drinks and baking has been processed to removed most of the fat, and generally result in a stronger chocolate taste

comment mashed potatoes - fixing undercooked potatoes
$100 for the person in a blind test who can tell the difference between potatoes boiled in a microwave or boiled in a pot on the stove. Microwave ovens are perfect for cooking or reheating basic food items that contain plenty of starch and water
