Salt Content in a Ramen

  • Salt Content in a Ramen

    Today, I went to a ramen shop to eat Szechuan spicy noodles with my friends.

    The ramens, especially the Szechuan spicy noodles have a high salt content, and it’s not good for our health.

    In fact, the salt content of the Szechuan spicy noodles is about 6.3 grams.
    実際、担々麺の塩分含有量は約 6.3 g です。

    According to the WHO, it is recommended that people limit their salt intake no more than 5 grams per day.
    WHOでは一日の塩分摂取量が 5 g 以下になることを推奨しています。

    Also, the US government recommends that Americans limit their salt intake no more than about 6 grams per day to prevent a cardiovascular disease.
    また、米国では心臓血管病の予防のため、一日の塩分摂取量が約 6 g 以下になるよう呼びかけています。

    That is, if you ate the Szechuan spicy noodles, your health would be exposed to risk.

    However, Japanese people get salt average 10 g per day.
    しかし、日本人は一日に平均 10 g の塩分を摂取しています。

    Therefore, most Japanese people have the problem of high-blood pressure.

    I’d like to be careful not to become HBP.
