5 culinary habits that can harm our health

Even experienced hostesses from time to time make irreparable mistakes related to gastronomic hygiene. The kitchen can be quite a dangerous place if you do not follow the safety regulations

What can be dangerous cooking? It turns out that many rituals and habits, which we consider to be quite acceptable in the kitchen, should be forever left in the past.

1. Wash raw meat under the tap
Meat
As you know, running water does not wash off all the existing bacteria. In a decent supermarket, they are unlikely to sell meat with obvious pollution or unintelligible garbage, the market is another thing. Here you can doubt the sanitary norms or the cleanliness of the meat seller. But not everything is so simple. The fact is that washing the meat under the tap in the tap, we automatically leave the washed-off contaminants in the sink, thereby exposing ourselves to even greater danger. The best way is to blot chunks of meat with a napkin before frying in a frying pan or baking in the oven.

2. Taste the raw dough
Dough
Raw dough mixed in eggs is not strongly recommended to try. Everyone knows that raw eggs can contain salmonella bacteria and other dangerous microbes. The same applies to the dough that does not contain eggs, since sometimes flour can contain E. coli, which can lead to food poisoning.

You should not try products that are in doubt in trying to determine their suitability. It is better to make it in color and smell. Even seemingly completely harmless, a small piece of a spoiled product can cause serious harm to the body.

4. Use one knife for different products.
Knives
Sometimes, in order to save time, housewives use one knife for both vegetables and meat. However, this habit is very dangerous. Bacteria found in meat can be easily transferred to fish and other products. Therefore, when cooking it is necessary to use different knives, dishes and cutting boards for each category of products.

5. Rarely change the sponge and do not wash your hands while cooking
Dishes
During the processing of certain products, bacteria and harmful microorganisms may remain on the hands. Therefore, during cooking, you should rinse as often as possible, and, as necessary, wash your hands well.

As for the sponge for dishes, these kitchen utensils are almost the most polluted and dangerous because of the huge accumulation of various bacteria in them. It is recommended to constantly disinfect sponges and cloths, and change them to new ones once a week.
