Salt alert!

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - FILM MAKER -

If you’re watch­ing your salt in­take, it may sur­prise you to know that added salt in bread can be dou­ble that found in a packet of chips. A study from The Ge­orge In­sti­tute for Global Health in Aus­tralia looked at 1439 bread prod­ucts and found some, such as rye, had more than a third of the daily rec­om­mended salt in­take of 5g in just one slice. “These breads are a good source of fi­bre, so our ad­vice is to look for high-fi­bre breads that are also low in salt,” says the study’s lead au­thor Clare Far­rand.
