What are the benefits of charcoal that few people know?
Navigasi - Wood charcoal has long been known to us as an ingredient for ignition in cooking, as it has been used by our ancestors.
Wood charcoal is also often used in making satay and grilled chicken because the aroma produced from this wood charcoal increases our appetite.
Often some people also call wood charcoal as charcoal briquettes because of its use as cooking fuel and the basic ingredients do not always use wood but also various materials such as coconut shells, leaves and others which are then printed into charcoal brikers. In addition, excellent materials that are good for making wood charcoal for cooking are as follows.
Main ingredients for charcoal making:
Coconut shells (the best for making charcoal with a very fragrant and appetizing aroma) Wood (standard material that can be directly used) Rice bran (requires a molding process to become charcoal briker) Sawdust (this is the same, it still needs a printing process)
From the data above, if it is used as an ignition material in cooking, the best is coconut shell.
But a good standard in the use of charcoal is from wood because it can be used directly without the need for a lot of processing like the others.
As for the use of rice bran and sawdust, we have to process them first and the aroma is not as strong as coconut shells and wood.
