Salt Reduction

Salt Reduction

Salt reduction offers an important opportunity to improve population health. In the UK alone, if consumers cut their daily intake from the average 8.1g a day to the recommended 6g a day it would reduce strokes by 22% and heart attacks by 16%.
So what is the industry doing to combat our addiction and prove it is worth its salt?
