Salt and Health
Research published today by the FSA reveals that people in Great Britain are consuming less salt than they were five years ago. Urinary sodium tests show a small but significant decrease in the average salt intake of the population since last measured in 2001.

The new data shows that average daily salt consumption has fallen from 9.5g to 9g
