Revant Himatsingka on Indigo's Pre-packaged food

 

Revant Himatsingka shared the video on X with the caption, "Shocking video about the food served at Indigo airlines! Most of us already know that Maggi is a high sodium food! What most of don’t know is that Indigo’s Magic Upma has 50% more sodium than Maggi, Indigo’s Poha has ~83% more sodium than Maggi, and Daal Chawal has as much sodium as Maggi. Just because “Upma”, “Poha”, “Daal chawal” sound healthy, does not mean they are healthy. Always remember junk food pretending to be healthy, is even more dangerous than junk food. Indian’s already consume too much sodium and consuming excess sodium on a regular basis raises our blood pressure and can result in hypertension, heart issues and kidney issues.
