About this app

Just select the weight of the ingredients, the salt content, and the seasoning to use, and the appropriate amount of seasoning will be calculated.

■Three benefits of SaltMate
[1. No seasoning mistakes]
The amount of seasoning is calculated based on the weight of the ingredients, so even if the amount you make changes, the seasoning will not fail. You can always reproduce the same taste.

[2. Easy salt reduction]
Since you can specify the salt concentration in detail as a percentage, you can easily control the salt content while maintaining the balance of taste.

[3. No leftover ingredients]
Even if the amount of ingredients changes, the app will accurately calculate the seasonings. You can use up the remaining ingredients until the end.

■Cooking expert Supervised by chef Hiroshi Mizushima:
SaltMate was developed under the supervision of chef Hiroshi Mizushima, a culinary expert known for his "logical cooking." Now comes a recipe provided by Chef Mizushima.


■Main functions of SaltMate
[Recipe creation]
Create a recipe based on the weight of ingredients, salt content, and seasoning ratio. We focused on ease of use.

[Seasoning calculation]
The app calculates the optimal amount of seasoning. Results are displayed in real time.

[My recipe]
Once you create a recipe, you can register it in the app. You can reproduce the same taste next time.

[My seasonings]
Frequently used seasonings can be registered as presets. Just add the seasoning according to the nutritional information label.

■What is SaltMate?
For those who cook at home, it feels great to be able to use up leftover food in the refrigerator without wasting it. Moreover, if the food is delicious, you will be even more happy. I'm also concerned about nutritional balance. In particular, too much salt is said to cause high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and stroke.

I think these topics related to home cooking, such as ``economy,'' ``seasoning,'' and ``nutritional balance,'' are always a topic of concern for those who are in charge of preparing meals for their families.

There is one rule here.

``Dishes become more delicious when salt accounts for 0.8% of the weight of the finished product.''

This is a scientific cooking method called "logical cooking." If you follow this rule when cooking, you will never go wrong with seasoning.

But even if it says "0.8% salt", how can I find out? It may be necessary to measure the weight of the ingredients, and the salt concentration in seasonings varies, so it can be difficult to consider how much seasoning to use.

That's where SaltMate comes in. SaltMate is a smartphone app that calculates the appropriate amount of seasoning based on the "law of salt" of logical cooking.

■Calculate the amount of seasoning from "weight" and "salt concentration"
By inputting the "weight of ingredients," "salt content," and "seasoning ratio" into SaltMate, it will instantly calculate the amount of seasoning you need. Calculation is based on the weight of the ingredients, so you can know the amount of seasoning with a certain salt content depending on the amount you are making.

■When is it useful?
[When you want to use up leftover ingredients]
For example, when I was preparing ingredients for a vegetable stir-fry, I remembered that I had a lot of bok choy left in the refrigerator that I wanted to use up. This is where you'll definitely want to add bok choy to your stir-fried vegetables and use up all of it. However, I don't know how much seasoning to add to compensate for the amount of bok choy I'm adding.

SaltMate is useful in such cases. Just weigh all the ingredients, including the bok choy, set the salt content to 0.6% (*), enter the seasonings according to the seasoning ratios listed in the recipe, and you will find the appropriate amount of seasonings. Calculated instantly.

*The reason why it is set at 0.6% instead of 0.8% is because it takes into account the amount of water evaporation.

[For those who are concerned about salt]
SaltMate allows you to change the salt concentration in 0.1% increments. Also, the "salt equivalent amount" contained in the food is displayed, so if you are concerned about salt content, you can adjust the salt concentration percentage little by little to your desired salt equivalent amount. .

At this time, the proportions of seasonings do not change, so you can control only the salt content while maintaining the balance of taste. SaltMate is convenient for people who are concerned about salt intake.

[When you want to encounter the same taste again]
After all, taste is the lifeblood of cooking. If a dish turns out delicious, you want it to taste the same the next time you make it.

If you save recipes in SaltMate, you can recall them anytime. Seasonings are calculated each time based on the weight of the ingredients, so you can recreate the same taste even if the quantities change each time you make it.
