The product contains a high amount of salt at 1.57 gm salt (629 mg sodium) per 100 gm. The WHO recommended daily allowance for salt intake per day is between 1 to 3 gm.
As it is a deep fried snack, other than high salt it contains a high amount of fat too at 38.2 gm per 100 gm pack, which  makes this food product a HFSS food (High Fat Sugar or Salt) and such foods are not recommended as safe for most people. Currently prevalent high consumption of HFSS products is causing an epidemic of lifestyle disease in India.
It contains hydrogenated vegetable oil-vanaspati in it. Partially Hydrogenated and Hydrogenated fats are a source of trans fatty acids or “transfats”, which are harmful to health. Transfats increase the likelihood of heart disease, stroke, cancer and many other ailments.
Palmolein oil is generally a safe oil as unlike most other vegetable oils, palmolein is primarily saturated fat. It does not have too much PUFA, which can get oxidized under heat and is often rendered toxic.
However, a scientific report suggests that current levels of glycerol-based process contaminants found in palm oil are a “potential health concern.” Animal studies have identified these contaminants, which are formed when vegetable oils are heated to high temperatures and then refined, as both genotoxic (damaging to DNA) and carcinogenic (causing cancer). Of all vegetable oils, palm oil was found to have the highest levels of these contaminants. At high levels of exposure, these contaminants are a health hazard for all age groups, the authority concluded, expressing particular concern for infants, toddlers and children under the age of 10.
