Salt question. Need smartie smarts


#1

Let’s say I don’t want to add salt to my Soylent. If I need additional salt how many Doritos would I need to lick in substitution?


#2

Im guessing perhaps 20ish but not actually sure of the sodium content of the flavor powder


#3

Careful, I’ve heard that it only takes three licks to get to the center… oh, wait…


#4

I personally believe, that for those than need the extra sodium, just get one of those ramen flavor packets and eat that… I really doubt there is any other nutrition in it.


#5

shudders - do you not immediately imagine the texture of the resulting Dorito? And does that not make you shrivel in fear and horror?


#6

Do you mean solid? As the texture. Of is it just corny?


#7

Soggy. Once-solid but no more.


#8

So the issue is what to do with all the licked chips…

Any creative DIYers here?


#9

Couldn’t you just replace some of the masa in People Chow with them?


#10

Brilliant!!!

Wow, this thread is chock full of bright minds

I wasn’t adding salt to my Soylent as I figured I was getting plenty of salt from conventional food that I was consuming in the evenings and the occasional chips in the afternoon. But I always had a low grade headache unless I stopped using Soylent. So I broke down and added salt to my Soylent, and so far so good. I feel better, and the headache’s are less frequent. It’s only been two days so it may be too early to say this is the cure but if it is I have a theory. The theory is that without the sodium in the Soylent, it produces a sodium/potassium imbalance that isn’t good. I think the body reacts different when the sodium is balanced with the potassium as compared to sodium being consumed at different times to the consumption of Soylent.

I don’t mind the flavor change too much, it took the sweetness down a couple notches which is good.
