Low Salt

Low Salt

Salt is one of the simplest and most important ingredients in the world. It enhances flavour - chocolate salted caramel is ample proof of that and preserves everything from beef and the pickles it's served with. But using those fine characteristics in processed food has increased salt consumption to worrying levels. Reduce the risk of high blood pressure and its associated outcomes like heart attack by avoiding lots of ready made foods - especially those with barbecued, smoked and marinated on the label - and stick to lots of fresh fruit and vegetables with little or no salt when you cook.
