As an experienced media spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association, Campaign Dietitian for Change4LIfe BAME community projects and consultant nutritionist to various food brands, you can rely on Azmina to provide an authoritative and engaging quote for your press release.

Salt is salt

“Cooking shows can normalise excessive salt use,” Azmina Govindji, a dietician and British Dietetic Association (BDA) spokesperson, tells Natasha Hinde of HuffPost UK. Rather than following the lead of chefs who liberally sprinkle sea salt onto food, she advises us to take such methods of food prep with, ahem, “a pinch of salt”.

Whether you’re reaching for table, pink Himalayan, sea or Kosher salt, they all contain roughly the same level of sodium, she adds. “There is no robust evidence to suggest that any type is better for you than another.”

Calories on menus

Azmina Govindji, a spokesperson at the British Dietetic Association, told Caroline Allen of Yahoo Style: “Changing our environment can help make it easier for people to choose healthier options; there are no quick fixes and putting calories on menus is just one way that might make some of us think twice before we order.”

Vegan junk food
Azmina and Dr Aseem Malhotra told Linsey Hope of The Sun that vegan foods aren’t necessarily healthy: Azmina Govindji, a registered dietitian and spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association, said: “If you eat a vegan or meat burger once in a while, choose the one you enjoy most. If you regularly reach for a vegan option thinking it’s automatically going to be better for you, think again.”
