Salt and Sodium

"Most salt in the diet does not come from addition to food in the home by consumers but from processed foods. This makes it extremely difficult for individuals to reduce their own salt intake and to maintain a reduced intake over any length of time."Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition4
"6g is higher than the Reference Nutrient Intake (RNI) and substantially greater than the salt intake required to maintain the sodium content of the body"4
Reference Nutrient Intake / required for age:15+ is 4g salt (1.6g Sodium). Daily target average is 6g salt
