Shoppers Advised to Drop Foods Not Worth Their Salt

Shoppers are being fed with healthy counsel about dropping salt-laden foods. The campaign group - Consensus Action on Salt and Health (Cash) has begun working its way to beat// excess salt out of food stuff.

The group has urged shoppers to take a conscious decision to shun salty foods, which will in turn encourage manufacturers to reformulate such foods. The campaign has impressed upon shoppers to avoid buying products which contain either more than 1.25g of salt (0.5g of sodium) per 100g or more than 2.4g of salt per serving.

Similar boycott of ‘unhealthy’ foods in the past, had led to reformulation of food stuff, to enable healthier choices to the public. The campaign group's chairman, Professor Graham MacGregor, said: 'This proves that lower salt versions can be developed and we must now support the lower salt products and vote with our feet when it comes to the ones that have not been reformulated or still contain unnecessarily high amounts of salt.’

Foods containing too much salt can cause high blood pressure, which could trigger strokes and heart attacks. Professor MacGregor added: ‘If we halve our salt intake, i.e. make a reduction of 6g/day from the current intake of 10-12g, we will save approximately 70,000 people from developing strokes and heart attacks each year, 35,000 of which are fatal.’

This move by the campaign is certainly worth its salt.
