#TipThursdayonMCZ Edition 7 | SALT AND SUGAR CHOICES.

Salt and Sugar have been identified by medical personnels as the most ‘dangerous’ to humankind. However, this should be of worry if consumed in excess — as salt have been identified as a contributing factor of high blood pressure/hypertension to how sugar have been linked to high blood sugar levels in the human body.

This week on Tip Thursday we comb through four subheadings as a guide to making healthy salt and sugar choices.


If you like the taste of salt but don’t want to damage your health by taking in too much sodium, try the low-sodium varieties, it is the sodium in salt that is thought to contribute to hypertension. Sea salt is considered the best.


To regulate blood sugar levels the best vegetables to choose are fibrous varieties like cauliflower, cucumbers, celery, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, peppers and fruits such as pawpaw, melon and cherries that contain natural and not industrial sugars.


Nuts are a healthy, nutritious snack but remember to choose unsalted varieties as salted versions can contain high level of salt. Beware too much of these coated with soy sauce or other store bought salty produce.


Most people believe brown sugar is a healthier option than white sugar but in reality, the majority of brown sugar is simply refined white sugar with molasses added to change it colours. For healthier options, use pure honey or jaggery.
