Why Does Soup Turn Sour?

Soup is a delicious traditional dish, which is often present at the table. Although the soup is an easy and quick dish to prepare, it still has subtleties, which you need to pay attention to. The most common problem is soup turning sour. It can happen due to several reasons. Here's why soup turns sour:

- Lack of cooling. Immediately after preparing the soup, it is important to let it cool. Then you have to leave it in the fridge. Otherwise, the likelihood of the soup turning sour is extremely high. Cooling is a must, as it preserves the shelf life of the dish.

- Cooling too early. This is another dangerous moment to avoid. Under no circumstances should you put the soup in the fridge while it is still hot. Direct temperature changes will cause oxidation and acidification of the soup.

- The products in the soup. Soup turning sour is a process that largely depends on the ingredients. If the soup contains flour, it turning sour occurs much faster, regardless of whether the dish is stored at optimal temperatures.

The sour soup is recognized by the changed aroma, which is unpleasant. Another sign of sour soup is the taste, which becomes sour or bitter.

How can you fix its taste?

- One way is to add cream or milk to the soup and leave it to simmer for about 10 minutes.

- Another way is to add 1-2 spoons of cream to each portion of soup. It helps to soften the taste of tomato soup, cabbage soup and others.
