advisable to eat our traditional food items

Dear All, all are making their logical contribution in this circle in one or the other way. I would like to press upon every one that it is always advisable to eat our traditional food items depending on the region and the climate. Avoid eating the food varieties which are not our tradition for centuries. I was surprised that in Kolkata i saw hundreds of shops selling FRANKIE, made by the people either not from Bengal or other states.

Mainly the youngsters they eat a lot while walking on the roads in some areas.

People come to many big cities from each part of the country for their livelihood, and bring their ideas of making good business.

But they forget about the food items which were not there traditionally in our country.
If some one eats DOSA-IDALY-SAMBHAR ON AND OFTEN IN KASHMIR OR OTHER COLD REGIONS ONE IS BOUND TO FALL SICK IN TIMES WITH AGE.

SIMILARLY IN GUJARAT PEOPLE DON'T CONSUME TAMARIND IN DAL OR SAMBHAR BECAUSE IT IS SEEN THAT IN EARLIER YEARS PEOPLE WERE CONSUMING THIS TAMARIND, WHICH IS NOT SUITABLE FOR THE CLIMATE AND WATER OF GUJARAT REGION AND MANY OLD AGE PEOPLE WERE SUFFERING WITH RHEUMATISM.

Unless all such traditional food habits are also a part of the FSSAI's regular studies and research, and must also publish such data with the support of AYURVEDA and the TRADITION OF EACH REGION , THE DEFINITION OF JUNK FOOD WILL BE HALF RIGHT HALF WRONG.

The craze of eating and spreading wide advts by the restaurants, hotels, must also be brought under the scanner of the FSSAI regulation.


In one of the staff canteen in Europe , they serve daily nearly 40-50 items and they display the calorific value of some different combination of those items.
Similarly all restaurants can also do it, in the consumer interest.and FSSAI Can also take help of our AYURVEDA PRACTITIONERS. WHICH WILL HELP PEOPLE AND THE MASS POPULATION OF OUR COUNTRY. This is besides the FOOD ADULTERATION issues, which is also a biggest menace in our country.


This subject is very important and needs lot of deliberation by one and all including those who are at the helm of the affair -like FSSAI, HEALTH MINISTRY, CONSUMER AFFAIRS MINISTRY, PEOPLE FORUMS AND LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST THE SELLERS OF SUCH FOOD ITEMS LET HIM BE A ROAD SIDE GALLA, OR A RESTAURANT, HOTEL OR EVEN THE PARLIAMENT OR CANTEEN. WE NEED YOUNG, HEALTHY AND HAPPY INDIA NOT SICK.

Food varieties from different regions will always be available because people move from one place to another. Food industry also is a globalized one. The real problem we have is it is still highly unorganized and unregulated sector and safety standards are not strictly enforced. We should see how Singapore has designated areas for hawker centres and the have clearly defined rules and if anyone is found in violation. Not just fine, they are shut down.
Here you can park on a pavement and start selling any Indian food with questionable ingredients and in a dusty unhygienic environment. No one can or does anything about it as those who want can avoid but a lot of others who feel it must be okay if it sells. more  
Many might consider the post as a non science based indication mainly due
to their ignorance of goodness of traditional food vis- a- vis region
specific climate conditions.

As Muthusamy says try out and taste all type of food. there is no harm , but draw a line . One can't keep on taking alien food every day . They will fall sick or it will be reflected in their figure and later health.

I have seen many a foreigner when i I take them on tour in India , some follow the advice to always start the day with what they are used to in their country , Bread , butter, cheese , Jam and eggs. But a few daring ones who try out fried food like Vadai and Poori fall sick. So I give them friendly instructions to be careful and go about tasting the tasty spicy Indian food slowly .

Only the friends of the employed young ones and parents of the studying ones can give friendly advises on Junk Foods. more
