    Hi All,
    I could call my CDC, but your all so helpful with varying views....

    On the packaging it says to mix with "a minimum of" 227ml. Can we use more water? ie to make the soups less concentrated? If so... how much extra would be excessive.
    (I'm not sure if the ml is precise as it scientifically mixes with the vitamins/nutrients etc.)

    Thanks all
    SN

    i have everything with at least 300ml i know its not much more but i find the soups a little too thick at 227 and too runny with 350+

    all a matter of personal preference and extra water can add anymore calories hehe.

    when u use mix a mousse u need to only use 150ish cos otherwise it wont set though.

    have fun with ur experimenting!
