Does anyone know how much salt, if any, there is in the skim?

I fed it to some house guests who stayed too long - pretended it was guacamole. I think they said it was salty when they got to the hospital.

I did that too comma but never asked if it was salty. I'm looking to feed it to my plants

If there's not too much salt in it, it should be good stuff for fertilizer.

Even if it is salty can't you add more water and spread it out more

That is very interesting... If nothing else I'm gonna try using some of my water changes to water my tomatoes

I think the water from a change would be way too salty.

I say occasionally based on this link that was in the other thread shared.

Put it on some cement outside. Let it dry out and see if you have salt build up after
