Alert!! Salt level raises in Crackers and Dips

Winter holidays are upon us and we are all looking forward to X-mas and New Year celebrations. This means we will eat lots of salty snacks in parties.

Do you know Indians are already consuming twice the recommended salt intake?

Too much salt can also be hidden in breads, noodles and other seemingly unharmful snacks. Our, new research revealed that dips and crackers are saltier than seawater. Our research found that when certain dips and crackers are combined, a person can consume more than half a day’s worth of salt in just one serve.

Is this an alarming situation? Yes, it is. Excess salt may cause high blood pressure, heart and kidney diseases in human body.

So, watch out for Salt: The Hidden Killer

Wishing you a Merry Xmas and a Healthy New Year 2018

 

Best Wishes
