Salt, diet and health
The harmful effects of excessive use of ordinary salt or sodium chloride in our diet are well known. Excessive consumption is a reality among the general population in most countries of the world. Studies on hypertension show the relationship that exists between high daily intake of ordinary salt or sodium chloride and the high index of coronary diseases triggered by hypertension problems.
The governments of various countries have reacted to the problem by undertaking a series of measures designed to increase awareness of the need to reduce the consumption of sodium chloride. For this purpose, they have set limits for the industry in order to achieve reductions in the presence of sodium chloride in certain foods.
It is difficult to give up the flavour imparted by salt to most foods and to the products that we cook. Bonsalt low-sodium salts are completely natural and impart a flavour that is similar to that of ordinary salt.
In our foods, not just in our salt-shakers
According to studies made, 70% of the ingestion of sodium chloride comes from processed products. Most of the food industries have become aware of this problem and have made a commitment to decrease sodium content. Many of them are already using Bonsalt low-sodium salt in their products, including sauces, soups, cookies, cakes, cereals, prepared dishes, pizzas, and other products.
