The Ajinomoto Media Appreciation Day was also filled with presentations on the importance of dietary salt for health brought by a dietitian and clinical nutrition expert, dr. Johanes Casay Chandrawinata, Sp.GK, MND. “Many Indonesian people like salty and savory foods. However, eating foods that contain too much salt can lead to health problems, such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, stomach cancer, kidney stones, and stroke. Therefore, to maintain a healthy lifestyle, limiting salt intake is as important as eating fruits and vegetables,” said dr. Johanes.
Ajinomoto believes that healthy food should also be also a tasty food. Therefore, at this event Ajinomoto also introduced the “Bijak Garam” program. This program is a solution to reduce the use of salt in every dish while maintaining a balanced taste. The importance of being wise in salt intake was informed by Ajinomoto through several initiatives, such as health webinars about the importance of a salt diet for public presented by experts in health and nutrition, education through mass media and providing information on salt wise activities on www.dapurumami.com/page/bijak-garam.
In addition to inform about the importance of a salt diet, the page also provides tips on how to make low-salt dishes to keep them delicious and nutritious. This page also provides a "Tanya Nutri Expert" rubric so that people can find out nutritional information directly from the experts, as well as the "Umami Journal" rubric which is an interactive tool for sharing tips, culinary info, and various recipes. It’s time to take care of your and your loved one health, through the #bijakgaram movement.
