The World Health Organisation has set itself the objective to reach a daily salt consumption of the individual within 5 g (which is equivalent to 2 g of sodium).
The Italian Institute Sinu (Italian Society of Human Nutrition) affirms that this objective is at the moment very far if you consider that in Italy the usual consumption is equivalent to 9 g of salt daily and very often it is even higher, in particular in the southern regions where the quantity ih higher than 11 g.
For these regions it is appropriate to pay attention to which foods we introduce with our habitual diet because 75% of the taken salt is "invisible" that is it is contained in foods that are above suspicion.
The foods which have the highest "hidden" salt content are bread, bakery products, cold cuts and dairy products, prepared products as corn flakes.
For this reason it is important to read the labels of what we are buying, as already written many times, in order to reduce where it is possible the quantity of ingested salt.
The intercompany Working Group for the Reduction of Salt Consumption in Italy has affirmed that reducing the salt quantity from 10 to 5 g daily decreases the risk of stroke of 23% and the risk of heart diseases of 17%.
