Default Electolysis in cooking



Has anyone tried passing currents through food, as a different method
of food processing in cooking. Any ideas of what will happen? Any
hazzards or risk reduction methods anyone has got?

The type of thing I was going to start with was some mixed veg soup,
and pass a current through it for 30 min.

Any suggestions / comments welcome

Thanks

A commercial device was available to cook hot dogs by impaling them endwise
on nail like electrodes. The current heated them. There was no significant
hydrogen given off. Cooking is the usual mode of killing by direct current.

Put enough salt in your soup, and you might start to generate some
sodium hydroxide and chlorine gas. Would give the soup a rather
unpleasant flavor in that case.

I saw Mr. Wizard do this on his show. He stuck a fork in each end of
a hot dog, then he took an extension cord with alligator clips and
attached it to the forks and plugged it in. It was a *long* time ago
that I saw this, but I believe he plugged it right into a 120 V. AC
outlet. It cooked it PDQ as I remember.
