Haldiram, Patanjali, Nestle, others pledge to cut salt, sugar, saturated fat in their products
Notably, FSSAI on Tuesday launched ‘Eat Right Movement’ to improve public health and combat lifestyle diseases. The campaign asks key stakeholders like food processing industries and restaurants to volunteer to reduce the percentage of salt, sugar and fat content in food.
The campaign has been kick-started at a time when India is turning up to be a diabetes capital of the world. In addition, cases of anaemia and micronutrient deficiencies are on the rise in the country. Image source: Reuters
