Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has shared some easy tips to reduce oil consumption in our day-to-day life, which is very important for healthy living. 

Reducing oil consumption in our diet is the first initiative towards a healthy life and these tips shared by FSSAI will make big difference to not just our journey towards weight loss, but also our overall health. 

Here Are 7 Tips to Reduce Oil Consumption in your Diet: 

Tip 1: Bake, grill or steam 

The frying process uses up so much oil thus making our food more fattening than is necessary so try to avoid fried food and use alternative methods of cooking such as baking, grilling or may be even steaming to cook food. 

Tip 2: Snack smart 

Snacks are another major source of oil in our diet choosing for baked, roasted or steamed snacks may be a great idea as it helps cut down our daily oil intake, as per the FSSAI. 

Tip 3: Measure wisely 

FSSAI advises employing a measuring spoon for using oil while cooking, instead of pouring directly from the oil bottle. 

Tip 4: Get Oil Smart 

There are several healthy oils, which are full with the essential fatty acids healthy which include alternative oils just like the kind made with sunflower, rice bran, flaxseed, sesame, peanut, mustard or even coconut oil. These oils are healthier and contain fewer amounts of saturated fats. 

Tip 5: Get clever in the kitchen 

Papad is one among the favourite accompaniments to every Indian meal; however, fried papad can be very unhealthy sometimes. One of the simplest tips is to roast papad rather than frying it in oil, this will drastically lower the oil quantity going into your body.  

Tip 6: Do not repeat the use of frying oil 

Frying food in oil that has been previously heated leads to the release of toxins which could be harmful to the body thus, FSSAI advises measuring the number of frying oil carefully before beginning to heat it. 

Tip 7: Track and monitor 

Always keep a check while purchasing oil, and as you follow the sooner tips suggested by FSSAI, your oil consumption would slowly reduce. 

Take these small steps will make you healthier and fitter!!
