In the process of chicken stew, fat, vitamins and calcium in the bones relatively easily dissolved into the soup. Fat-soluble substances are dissolved in fat flavor inside, into the soup along with the fat, and water-soluble flavoring substances naturally easy access to the soup, which is the reason why the soup tastes better. However, the soup tastes better does not mean that we are concerned about the nutritional content of protein also entered the soup. Chicken proteins in more species, in the process of stew only a small part will be dissolved into the soup. How many proteins dissolve in the soup greatly affected by salt and soup time, but hardly more than 10% of the total. In other words, just do not eat meat soup, then throw away the equivalent of more than 90% protein.

In the course of chicken soup, when salt is very important. Salt is added to dissolve the one hand promoting protein, that is, add the salt soup stew will increase the protein. Some also say that salt can cause coagulation of meat protein denaturation, thus preventing protein dissolution. This argument somewhat for granted. Chicken without salt added during the denaturation of proteins are in the process of high temperature stew, protein does not solidify. On the other hand, the addition of salt to increase the osmotic pressure of the soup, chicken causes dehydration. The usual words, chicken become “dry” lost “tender” taste. This is also the reason it is difficult to eat chicken soup finished stew.
