What is okara and what does it eat with?

Okara is a soy product produced in the production of soy milk. After boiling in water and grinding the soybeans, the milk is separated from the undissolved portion and is used either directly or to produce tofu soy cheese or sour-milk drinks. But the pulp (undissolved part) remaining after separation (filtration and extraction) of milk is (on the one hand) a by-product of milk production, and on the other hand is a very valuable low-calorie semi-finished dietary product. This is Okara – a loose moist mass of pale yellow color, reminiscent of millet porridge. Okara can be stored frozen.

The word okara stuck in Russian (like the word TOFU) without translation from Chinese. However, the meaning of this traditional name for the East is deeply symbolic. The hieroglyph KARA literally means “China of the Tang Dynasty” (hence the origin of the word “karate” – “kara” – China, “te” – hand). So, “kara” means China, but the letter “O” before any word in almost all languages ​​means reverence and deification. This is the kind of reverence given to this product in China. Continue reading

Is a microwave harmful to food?

The debate about the dangers or benefits of food cooked or preheated in a microwave oven has been going on for decades, since when in 1946 American engineer Percy Spencer first noticed the ability of microwave radiation to heat food, and Raytheon patented the invention, starting one year later production of microwave ovens for the military.

Over the past almost 70 years, microwave ovens, as ordinary household appliances, have penetrated almost every home and office, although there is still no final verdict on their benefits or harms. Even despite the fact that in 2008 the World Health Organization issued a conclusion – “microwave ovens use radiation that does not adversely affect either humans or food”, disputes, as in the topic of GMOs, continue. We would like to convince you that the microwave should still be discarded.

In order to better understand this issue, it is necessary to distinguish two aspects of the topic – firstly, what is the effect of microwaves on a person himself and secondly, on food products that a person then consumes. Continue reading
