Product selection

Get the right texture of the dish will allow the correct choice of cereals. It should be homogeneous, without lumps and pebbles. The presence of the first suggests that the semolina is damp in the process of storage or transportation, which means it could acquire a rancid or moldy taste. The second will tell about the low quality of production and non-compliance with GOST. The small flour mills, which have outdated technological lines, are “sinning” with stones.

Other nuances of the choice of cereals.

  • Use the brand "M". Such croup differs in matte color, from light white to cream. The grains are small, crumbly, round shape. It is made from wheat soft varieties and is ideal for children's cereals, cooking manniki. The grains are boiled soft completely, practically dissolve in the dish, because of which it gets an even consistency. The disadvantage of the product can be considered its high calorie content (360 Kcal per 100 grams), so it will not work for a diet. In healthy nutrition, T-grade cereal is used; durum wheat is used for its production.
  • Do not cook from old cereals. Shelf life in plastic packaging is 10 months. The same amount of product will be stored in a glass jar, tightly closed with a plastic lid. If the "age" of semolina is not known, it is better to refuse to cook dishes from it. Grains are extremely susceptible to the absorption of "aromas" and moisture from the environment, which changes their taste from bitter to sour.
  • Buy a product from reputable manufacturers. It is better to take a familiar brand, as a reputable manufacturer will not use bad raw materials. By bad is meant imported wheat, which is often delivered in tankers where petroleum products are transported. From such a neighborhood, croup receives a specific taste, which cannot be derived. Large producers use domestic raw materials, Russian wheat. She and useful, and the quality of the semolina turns consistently high.
