Blog: Salt Awareness Week

Catherine Sleep | 31 January 2007

New research from Consensus Action on Salt and Health (CASH) released to coincide with this week’s Salt Awareness Week (whaddya mean, you didn’t notice?) shows that many branded food products now contain significantly less added salt than a few years ago. Heinz, Birds Eye, New Covent Garden Soups and most supermarkets gained plaudits from CASH, for example.

Nevertheless, the campaign group calls on consumers to boycott those that still have large and unnecessary amounts of salt. Naming and shaming has proven effective in the past, so CASH has adopted this strategy to draw consumer attention to products that contain high salt levels. They include a Sainsbury’s oat and bran flake cereal which contains only marginally less salt per 100g than Atlantic seawater, along with various soups and sauces and even some crumpets.
