Salt levels in our food

The amount of salt consumed by most people has been a worry for many years. In fact, it’s estimated that of the salt we consume, an astonishing 75 percent of it is already present in our food.

Most foods contain some salt, but it’s the¬†foods¬†that are naturally high in salt we need to watch out for because eating these can push our salt intake over the edge. This is why it’s important to choose foods that are lower in salt, when you can.

Some foods are almost always high in salt because of the way they are made – you can still enjoy them, but try to have these in smaller amounts, or eat them less often.
