How to Mask Bitter Taste in Soups?
As we already said, kratom has a pretty powerful bitter and earthy taste which is very hard to mask. Below we’ll give you some tips on how to mask bitter taste in soups to try with the above recipes.
- Taste the soup and add salt if necessary. Then, let it cook for a while and taste again to see if that worked. But be careful not to overdo it.
- If the above doesn’t work, add some sugar or honey and let it cook. Like salt, you don’t want to overdo it. So, start by adding little amounts and taste after a few minutes.
- Add some olive oil or butter to the soup and allow it to mix. Usually, oils stick to your tongue, so you won’t be able to notice the bitter taste so much.
- Use spices to flavor the soup, this will help you cover kratom’s taste.
Finally, remember to always be careful with your kratom dose. Simply add the amount that you’d normally use for one dosage for every soup serving, i.e. if you prepare soup for 4 servings, you should add 4 kratom powder doses.
