The nutritionist Ana Núñez explained that the best coffee to consume is natural to take advantage of its properties, but many do not know the benefits and the use of the grounds it leaves.

“Coffee is a powerful antioxidant and provides us with other nutrients such as fiber, so we can make the most of it and not only to drink its infusion, also making uses of the grounds, since by throwing them we are throwing away a very interesting product,” she explained to the Spanish newspaper ABC.
According to Núñez, these remains can be given a second life and reused in the following way:
Natural coffee grounds are biodegradable and good fertilizers for plants.
● It is an excellent air freshener and inhibitor capable of neutralizing any type of odor. Placing it in an open bowl in the refrigerator will quickly absorb bad odors. It is so effective that it can even be used in fireplaces to neutralize the smell of ashes.
● Serves as a repellent for ants that flee from the remains of natural coffee.
● These remains can also be used in baking and cooking, according to the nutritionist, who recommends using them to marinate meats or tofu or add them to smoothies to revive the flavor of these drinks.
“I suggest that you mix them with black pepper, soy sauce and a teaspoon of sugar and use this mixture to cover the meat or tofu and leave them like that for a few hours so that the flavors penetrate. Then grilled or baked, you can also add them to your milk-based shakes, vegetable drink or water to give them an extra flavor and to prepare your homemade soft drinks with sparkling water,” concluded Núñez.
