HOW MUCH WE SPREAD IN THE KITCHEN?

“Nothing is thrown away in the kitchen” our grandmothers used to say this and many starred chefs have said so for years, yet in our kitchens waste continues.

We waste our money and do not safeguard our health.

Here are some examples when we clean vegetables and legumes:

To have 100 grams of vegetables and legumes that we consider “clean” We buy a higher quantity that we consider “dirty”, and every 100 grams of product used we have a high “waste”
Field asparagus purchase 110 g waste 10 g
Asparagus purchase 190 g waste 90 g
Chard purchase 120 g waste 20 g
Broccoli purchase 170 g waste 70 g
Broccoli rabe purchase 170 g waste 70 g
Artichocke purchase 180 g waste 80 g
Carrot purchase 110 g much higher if we find carrots with leaves that we usually throw wrong. We waste 10 g at least
Cauliflower purchase 150 g waste 50 g
Cabbage purchase 180 g waste 80 g
Brussel sprouts purchase 130 g waste 30 g
