Food Poisoning: Electrolyte Tablets

I had food poisoning this month and it's been with me for a few weeks now. I read up on the foods that I should gravitate towards: like rice, crackers and clear soups. However, I read that electrolytes are important and was wondering if Science In Sport Hydro Hydration Tablets would be a good idea?

Advice shied away from "energy pills", but these seem to contain electrolyte specifically for hydration.

Can anybody recommend them, or anything better? I don't want big bottles of pop on hand (I don't drink fizzy drinks), and these tablets would turn water into something really useful, only taking up a little space.

You are touching on a tricky area. You really need to talk with a professional nutritionist, and a doctor. They can determine where your body is at, and prescribe the proper supplements/medicines that you need.

I can give you great recipes, and cooking techniques. But yoy need the expertise of someone who specializes in nutrition, and what makes the body work.

I think you're right.

I cannot be sure, but I think that I've tracked it down to Beef Mince, as after recovering well after three days I just got ill again after eating some.

I think it's been in the freezer for too long ?

Being in the freezer too long won't cause food poisoning, just reduction in quality, if any air is contacting the meat, when packaged.
Thawing at room temperature can be dangerous, and being refrigerated for too long can also cause problems, but not freezing for long periods, even when not at ideal temperatures. Just more freezer burn.

Good luck getting better quickly!

It could just be that even though I don't feel bad, that the bacteria is still present to cause upset ?

That's not something we can answer. Please call your doctor today.
