How to choose a good bamboo cutting board

A cutting board made of bamboo is a bamboo cutting board. The colloquial term for pads placed on the stove to prevent damage when cutting vegetables is called cutting board. In the past, cutting boards were mainly made of wood and plastic, but due to the easy loss and the greater harm of plastics, most of the cutting boards on the market are made of bamboo. When cutting cooked food, many families are accustomed to using traditional wooden cutting boards, and many young people prefer plastic cutting boards. In fact, the cooked food delivered to the mouth is the threshold of “disease in the mouth”. Wooden cutting boards are prone to chipping off, while plastic cutting boards are easy to breed bacteria. Nowadays, there are bamboo cutting boards on the market, which are not only light, smooth, and antibacterial.

“Compared with wooden cutting boards and plastic cutting boards, bamboo cutting boards are safer.” According to experts, traditional wooden cutting boards are not safe. For example, cutting boards made of ebony wood contain toxic substances. Using it to cut cooked food will contaminate dishes and easily cause symptoms such as vomiting, abdominal pain, and dizziness. There are also some cutting boards with loose wood, which are prone to knife marks on the surface. If they are not cleaned thoroughly, they can easily hide dirt, breed bacteria, and contaminate food. Although the plastic cutting board is beautiful and light, if it is not dry, bacteria can easily multiply, and it is not suitable for cutting cooked food.

The bamboo cutting board is processed by high temperature and high pressure, which has the advantages of no cracking, no deformation, abrasion resistance, hardness, good toughness, etc., and it is portable, hygienic, and has a delicate smell. From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, bamboo is sweet and cold, and has a certain effect on inhibiting the reproduction of bacteria. Therefore, when cutting cooked food, the bamboo cutting board is an ideal choice.

When buying a bamboo cutting board, do not buy the one that is particularly white in color. It is best to smell the smell of the cutting board first. If there is a sour taste, it is likely to be bleached with sulfur fumigation, or glued. Yes, and the adhesive glue contains harmful substances. It is best to choose a non-glued bamboo cutting board, that is, a bamboo cutting board that is completely fastened with bolts or the whole bamboo surface is unfolded. The bamboo texture is better, and it is not easy to fake.
