Spices, herbs in food helps lower salt intake in adults
Washington: A new study has found that teaching people how to flavour food with and herbs is considerably more effective at lowering salt intake.
According to the research, people who had cooking lessons had less salt in their diet and learning to use seasoning is the first step to dietary change.
Cheryl Anderson, lead author of the study and associate professor in the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine at the University of California San Diego, said that helping people cook differently gave them control over their diet.
Anderson added that salt is abundant in the food supply and the average sodium level for Americans is very high and the use of a behavioral intervention where people learn how to use spices and herbs and less salt in their daily lives can help regulate that.
