How to get rid of nitrates in strawberries

Nitrates are very harmful chemicals that are often used to process vegetables, herbs, fruits and berries. It is worth noting that when they enter the bloodstream, they can cause oxygen deprivation, problems with the gastrointestinal tract, and can also increase the risk of cancer.

The FoodOboz editorial team will tell you how to get rid of harmful nitrates in strawberries at home.

1. Water

Make sure to wash berries and fruits well

Put the berries in water for 1.5-2 hours, so 40-50% of the harmful substances will remain in the water.

2. Heat treatment will destroy nitrates by 70%.

Strawberry jam

If you make a clotted jam, you can be sure that it will be safe, as the berries will be subjected to heat treatment.

3. Tear off the tails

Be sure to remove the tails

Nitrates can accumulate in them and remain for a long time, so after washing the berries, be sure to get rid of the tails.
