Sodium Recommendations

Sodium Recommendations

According to the WHO high sodium consumption (>2 grams/day, equivalent to 5 g salt/day) and insufficient potassium intake (less than 3.5 grams/day) contribute to high blood pressure and increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.


Sodium Source

The main source of sodium in our diet is salt, 75% of which comes from processed food.

Real Salt Intake

Global average of 9-12g per capita daily, much higher than the WHO recommendation.

2,5 million deaths could be prevented each year if salt consumption was among recommended levels.
