Reducing salt intake is often overlooked compared to sugar, despite its link to serious health issues like hypertension and heart disease. A simple solution is consuming under 5 grams of salt daily as advised by the World Health Organization. People find this challenging due to habits and lack of control over packaged food content. Strategies like stealth reduction and using alternatives like potassium chloride exist, but are not widely known. New ingredients are emerging to help lower salt intake, signaling a shift towards overtly promoting salt alternatives. It’s crucial for consumers to understand the significance of reducing salt in their diet.
