Coinciding with the month of Ramadan, PT AJINOMOTO INDONESIA (Ajinomoto) invited several media partners to attend a workshop entitled "“Media Launching: Manfaat Konsumsi Buah Saat Sahur dan Berbuka Puasa". In this event, Ajinomoto also introduced a new product, namely Mayumi® Fruit Salad Dressing, which is a dressing for fruit salad.
This workshop presented a Nutrition Lecturer from Esa Unggul University, Nazhif Gifari, S.Gz, M.Si, who conveyed the importance of a healthy lifestyle and balanced nutritional intake to stay fit during the month of Ramadan. Meanwhile, during fasting, according to Nazhif, the easiest way to keep your body fit is to eat a good diet, eat foods that are complete and balanced, exercise regularly, and reduce stress levels.
“Paid food, of course, must be delicious so that our appetite increases. Well, one thing that can increase our appetite when breaking the fast or eating sahur is a menu of refreshing foods such as fruits," said Nazhif.
"Fruits contain micronutrients consisting of quite a lot of vitamins and minerals, the fulfillment of these nutrients is needed by our body, especially in fasting conditions. Then, the antioxidant content in the fruit also plays a role in the body's immunity, the risk of reducing PTM disease, as well as the water content for the body's metabolism, especially during the current fast.
