I dehydrated the turkey breast, ground it in a blender, then ground it in a coffee grinder. When I add it to water and mix it, only a small part of it dissolves. How can it increase its solubility in water?

    It’s a solid, so it’s never going to truly dissolve. I think there are some questions on here about cocoa powder or spices that elaborate on the issue

    Oh, and if the issue is clumping, try mixing it with a little bit of water, making sure that it’s fully wet, then add the rest of your water

    I was trying to make a protein powder. My goal is to drink it easily. It makes me feel like I'm drinking a spoon of sand in a glass of water. I need to fix this. Commented Nov 8, 2022 at 17:49

    Maybe be mix it with something other than water with some fat content in it, like milk, cream or yogurt, sort of like a smoothie Commented Nov 8, 2022 at 18:07

Meat will never mostly dissolve in water, because it mostly isn’t water-soluble. (If it were, how would you make chunky soup?) What you’re looking for is a smooth suspension of the particles. If you had special equipment like a wet grinder, you could maybe produce a homogeneous enough slurry that could be dried and reconstituted (though it’s not what a wet grinder is really designed for). But I don’t think this is something a coffee grinder could do effectively.

    If it were, turkeys would dissolve when it rained!
