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.”
