FSSAI said easy way to reduce salt intake, know how much salt does harm

Excess of salt can be harmful to your health. Because of this there is a risk of increase in blood pressure and kidney related diseases. Therefore, people struggling with hypertension should use salt carefully. In addition, research has shown that high intake of salt can also weaken the immune system, making it difficult for the body to fight against bacterial infections. If your habit is to add extra salt to the food, then avoid it. The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has suggested four ways to reduce salt intake.

Tip 1
Instead of adding salt, you can substitute alternative spices like lemon powder, mango powder (dried mango powder), celery, black pepper powder and oregano.

Tip 2
Instead of adding salt to your food while cooking, use it at the end. In this way you will be able to use less salt during the cooking process.

Tip 3
Salt is hidden in food like pickles, papad, chutney, namkeen and salan. Therefore, try to reduce the intake of such food.

Tip 4
Avoid adding salt while cooking roti, rice, dosa and puri as this will cover the natural sweetness of the grains.
