    Himatsingka has cultivated a following of 2.6 million on Instagram where he exposes the dark patterns in marketing pre-packaged food. The Wharton graduate encourages his audience to ditch unhealthy pre-packaged meals and junk food for their own benefit.

    Himatsingka’s first brush with fame came in April 2023, when he made a video about Bournvita’s high sugar content and how the beverage is marketed as a health supplement for children. The video earned him a legal notice from the brand, but ultimately forced Bournvita to slash the sugar content in its product.

    More recently, the Food Pharmer shared a video exposing the high sodium content of meals served onboard Indigo flights. He pointed out that upma, poha and dal chawal served on the Indigo flights have more sodium than Maggi. Himatsingka said that although these food options may sound healthier than Maggi, that may not necessarily be the case.
