Too much salt in our food can wreak havoc in the body and give rise to conditions like high blood pressure. Here's what you can do to reduce your salt intake, as recommended by FSSAI. Choose to add flavour to your food instead of salt. Season it with lemon, ajwain or amchur powder. Instead of adding salt while cooking food, add it once the food is ready! It lends a saltier taste. Try to stay away from foods like papads and pickles that may have hidden salt in them.
