WHO (World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion) Guide­lines on Di­etary Salt

Consumer Voice - - Cakes -

Adults should con­sume less than 2 grams of sodium, or 5 grams of salt, per day, ac­cord­ing to guide­lines is­sued by the WHO. The main source of sodium in our diet is salt, although it can also come from sodium glu­ta­mate, used as a condi­ment in many parts of the world. A per­son with el­e­vated sodium lev­els could be at risk of raised blood pres­sure, which in­creases the risk of heart dis­ease and stroke.
