Warning: Packaged foods high in salt content


A trip to the supermarket can be rather challenging, as increasingly, the supermarket shelves are filled with packaged foods high in salt content. Foods to avoid, include:

  • Smoked and cured meats

  • Frozen dinners

  • Pre-prepared or ready meals

  • Canned meals

  • Condiments and sauces

  • Bread

  • Salted nuts and seeds

  • Processed cheeses

  • Crackers, biscuits and croutons

SALT SKIP TIP: Always read the Nutrition Information Panel (NIP) label on packaged foods. It is best to read the Per 100g column.

Choose lower sodium options among similar foods. Food with less than 400mg per 100g are good, and less than 120mg per 100g is best.
