Keep It Lite

For years now, hypertension has continued be one of the leading causes of deaths in urban India. Hypertension is attributable to 10.8% of all deaths in India. While sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy dietary practices share the blame, one thing that should not be overlooked is our overall sodium intake. And considering our love for finger foods, packaged snacks and sauces and ketchups, it’s unlikely the sodium consumption is going to see itself reducing. In times like these, all it takes the adoption of a more active lifestyle and a low-sodium variant of salt, to help us keep it light.

The general perception is that a salt switch often leads to loss of taste in foods. But with Tata Salt Lite, there is no compromise on taste.
