This week is World Salt Awareness Week and this years theme is hidden salt in our food.
In the US 70% of salt comes from packaged prepared and restaurant foods so how do we know the salt content of meals eaten out and thats the biggest source of sodium in some peoples diets.
Too much salt raises blood pressure and causes lots more issues so we the consumer need know what the salt content of prepared meals and food is. It is simple open transparency as the real health problem we face is caused because of fast food ready made meals as we have lost touch with what we are really eating.
