It’s World Salt Awareness Week from the 11-17th of March which is aimed at improving knowledge about the effects of a high-salt diet and encouraging people to add less salt to their food.
High salt intake is associated with high blood pressure which is the leading cause of strokes and a major cause of heart attacks.
A recent survey we conducted via our website and Facebook page found that 27% of respondents chose to add extra salt to their meals on a regular basis.
Salt is important in our diets, so it’s important not to eliminate salt entirely, but reduce your intake.
The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) says Australian adults should consume no more than 4g of salt a day (or 1,600mg of sodium), to keep serious health issues at bay.
Try these simple swaps to help reduce your salt intake:
• Swap regular pantry staples like tinned tomatoes and baked beans for salt reduced ones.
• Say ‘no’ to frozen dinners and canned soups; they are notoriously high in salt.
• Use herbs and spices to flavour your meals, rather than salt.
• Swap salty snack foods for low-salt alternatives such as plain popcorn and raw nuts.
