Salt Sodium and Sugar will kill us Indians
Uncontrolled Salt/Sodium and Sugar In our daily diet which we consume without any mindfulness.
Someone i know studied a 20 year old diagnosed with hypertension and took a detailed history of this person who has been consuming certain things on a daily basis, some common ingredients that we allow our children to consume unsuspectingly came about in the list - Readymade pasta, Namkeen, Sauce, Mayonnaise, Maggi, Cornflakes, chips, biscuits
When I got the dietitian to evaluate the total daily salt/sodium consumption of this child it came to be around 4500-6000mg of Sodium per day. The permissible limit as per AHA is 1500mg.
The parents of the kid were having an extremely hard time believing that these little snacks in the diet of their child could have contributed to their Hypertension, so my friend spent the weekend clicking pictures and evaluating the salt & sugar components of a lot of these
sharing snapshots of some daily packaged foods consumed in our households where we have marked the salt & sugar contents.
Apart from sugar, maltodextrin, starch, corn extract etc also are sugars so they should not be ignored.
Same applies for salt, sodium benzoate is salt.
I will share this in the comments more
