Medical experts believe that high salt intake in the diet can lead to a number of diseases, including hypertension, or at least increase their risk.
But scientists in Japan have come up with a unique invention that will eliminate the need to add salt to food.
Yes, scientists have claimed that they have developed the world’s first chopsticks that are capable of providing a salty taste.
The goal is to reduce the amount of salt in most popular Japanese dishes.
This chopsticks work on electric simulation and a mini computer wearable that is fastened to the eater’s wrist.
This device transmits sodium ion and makes the mouth feel salty with chop sticks.
Tokyo’s Meiji University has developed this unique invention, and researchers say that it is currently a prototype model, but it is expected that these chopsticks will be available to consumers next year.
The use of chopsticks is very common in China and Japan, especially in traditional Japanese dishes, salt is used a lot.
An average adult in Japan consumes 10 grams of salt a day, more than double the amount recommended by the World Health Organization.
The researchers said that the chopsticks they developed use very little electricity and do not affect the human body, but they do help people to change the way they taste food.
He said that during the trials, it was confirmed that this device makes the taste of less salty foods more salty.
As mentioned above, high salt intake can lead to high blood pressure and high blood pressure is considered to be the leading cause of heart attack and stroke.
