How Is Samosa Healthier Than Burger?
Do you eat Samosas and Burgers?
Did you know that eating a samosa is healthier than eating a burger?
At least, the Centre for Science and Environment says so.
Dieticians argue that more than the ingredients in a samosa, it's the oil it is cooked in that causes more harm to the body.
It is especially when fried by roadside vendors.
Since the vendors repeat the same oil for frying, it gets stale.
They also use hydrogenated oil that has transfatty acid.
Reports say that a samosa may be calorie-dense, but it is free of additives, preservatives and flavourants.
It is made of fresh ingredients like refined wheat flour, cumin, boiled potatoes, peas, salt, chilies, spices, vegetable oil or ghee.
Experts say that fresh food contains none of the chemicals present in ultra-processed food.
And that's exactly why eating a burger may not be good for your health.
These include refined sugar, sugar, yeast, salt, soy flour, mayonnaise, cheese, and potato patties, along with a preservative, acidity regulator and an emulsifier.
So, the next time you crave an evening snack, ditch the burger and pick up a freshly fried samosa instead!
