Flapjack made with salted butter?

Hi.

Just wondering really, I went and bought some butter as I'm gonna make flapjack for my rides, but I went and got salted butter this time, did not look properly, rather than wasting it, cause I sure as hell won't eat it any other time, is it ok to use it to make flapjack that I'd eat on a bike ride. I'm only asking as I know too much salt can cause dehydration, or would the amount of salt just replace what is lost?

It requires 200G of unsalted butter and 400g of oats, this butter has 1.75g of salt per 100g

Would this end up dehydrating me?


Thanks
Will.

    Don't electrolyte drinks make big claims about how much salt they replace and how losing salt reduces performance? Salt makes you thirsty but don't think it dehydrates you. Most butter is salted anyway isn't it? It's only disgusting stuff like Lurpak that isn't.

    Thinking about salt I decided to post this:

    Can't believe how easy it is to go over my daily allowance. I bet my body is being buggered already by it. Some days I have 2 cans of beans, that alone is 128% daily allowance of salt.

    It's a myth you know that beans make you fart.

    It might be for you but it certainly isn't for me!

    Baked beans = farts; Kidney beans = farts; Chick peas = farts; Butter beans = farts... :oops:

    I never looked much at the back of a can of bakes beans, 22g of protein per can!!!!!

    Now that's a recovery drink, blended bakes peans with some milk! :lol:

    You'll sweat out the majority of it if you ride your bike on a daily basis, so it will need to be replaced anyway.

    Thought it was around 60% for geezers and around 55% for chicks? Might be wrong tho...haven't done any non practical biology for 21 years.

    On the "fart" topic, I heard or read( cant remember) that its the skins of beans an pulses which trap/ hold intestinal gases as they pass through our systems. An then as they work their way to the ...er.. end of the line the gas is released. Aahhh
