The Thai Health Promotion Foundation has warned people participating in the Vegetarian Festival to beware of high salt content.

Thai Health Promotion Foundation warns of salty vegetarian meals | News by Samui TimesThe foundation and the Less Salt Project conducted a random sampling of vegetarian meals in Yaowarat, Aor Tor Kor Market, and Ying Charoen Market, and found the average sodium content of popular dishes to be above 1,000 milligrams, compared to the recommended amount of no more than 600 milligrams per meal.

People are therefore advised to opt for fresh fruit, soy milk, and grains, while avoiding ready-made meals, soup, fried food, and meals that are high in carbohydrates.
