How much salt are people consuming?

According to most sources - too much. People all over the world are advised to curtail their TOTAL salt intake to less than 5 mg a day to help reduce risk of high blood pressure.

In Germany, daily salt intake from all sources has been estimated to be up to 15 g a day (k+s Report, 2000).

In Switzerland total salt intake is estimated to be at 10 g/day (SVE, 1999).

In the UK, the Food Standards Agency recently started a major campaign aimed at reducing salt intake, including - for the first time - target figures for children.
