Eating healthily doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice flavour. Kikkoman fans know that just a splash of delicious soy sauce can add a depth of flavour to your meals.
Juliette Kellow, Nutritionist says:
Health experts recommend we have less than 6g salt every day.
Invest in a wok or non-stick frying pan – you won’t need to add much oil in dishes.
Always measure oil when cooking rather than pouring straight from the bottle. A tablespoon of oil contains around 100 calories and 11g fat so it's easy to add too much when “free pouring”.
Kikkoman Soy Sauces are packed with flavour – whether the original naturally brewed or the Less Salt variety – so a small amount in dishes is great for adding flavour without the fat. For best results measure the amount of soy sauce you add to dishes with a teaspoon or tablespoon, which will also control the amount of salt in the dish.
Where there is soy sauce in the ingredients you can leave out salt.
Get into the habit of checking labels to help cut down on the amount of fat you eat:
Products with 3g fat or less per 100g are considered to be low in fat.
Products with 1.5g saturates or less per 100g are considered to be low in saturates.
Kikkoman Less Salt Soy Sauce, Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce and Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade are all free from fat and saturates.
Stir frying is a great way to boost your vegetable intake. Half a large onion & pepper, and one carrot provides three of your 5-a-day!
As well as not adding salt to meals, health experts also recommend eating fewer salty foods especially those also high in fat eg. crisps, savoury snacks, pizzas and takeaways.
Home cooked oriental meals are much cheaper and more delicious than ordering a takeaway. Plus you’ve control over the ingredients. A carefully made homemade version of a favourite dish should contain fewer calories and less fat and salt than one from a local takeaway.
