Siomai Could Put Our Health At Risk!!!


Siomai may have originated from the Chinese. Siomai is one of the most popular dimsum that Pinoys love and it has become one of the favorite street food.

Aside for being affordable, another reason why Filipinos love it is because you can eat it everywhere.

Unfortunately, little do we know that pork siomai could put our health at risk.
Dr. Willie Ong, a cardiologist and health columnist who provides loads of health-related pieces of advice via social media, he said that, four pieces of steamed pork siomai already contains 400 calories, which is like one full meal already. Its fried version has 600 calories.

He also made a point that pork siomai contains 30% pork fat, to make it soft and tasty. The rest is ground pork and extenders. So if you are prone to hypertension, better avoid this food.

Dr. Ong also reminded those people who eats pork siomai together with rice saying that its a big NO-NO. Two pieces of siomai is already equivalent to one cup of rice, he said. So that means, you're flooding your body with a lot of calories which could cause hypertension.

Alternatively, he said that you could enjoy being healthy by consuming fish instead of pork.
