Salt

Most of us are eating more salt than we realise, and it’s not just the salt added to our cooking or at the table that we need to watch out for.

In fact, three-quarters of the salt we’re eating is already in the foods we buy. These can contain a lot of salt even if they do not taste salty.

It can often be really difficult to know what a healthier choice might be.
