US Authorities Asked To Abandon Salt in Food in the Next Few Years, but Why?
Fast food and takeaway meals are cheap and tasty. But such food contains too much salt. And extreme consumption can cause high blood pressure and even heart attacks and strokes. Nearly half of Americans suffer from these diseases.
That is why the US Food and Drug Administration has decided to issue a new regulation. According to it, chain restaurants and companies producing packaged foods and semi-finished products must reduce the salt content of their products. These include different cheeses, pickles, nuts, sauces, crackers, and other products.
This goal must be achieved in 2.5 years. Thus, on average, every American will eat 12% less salt every day, not 3.5 grams, but 3. A healthy norm is considered to be no more than 2.3 grams per day.
The new regulation will affect packaged food giants such as PepsiCo, Kraft Heinz, and Campbell Soup. In addition, the innovation will affect fast-food chains, including McDonald’s.
