The nature and composition of what we eat today is changing. People around the world are consuming more high energy foods that are high in saturated fats, trans fats, sugars, and salt. Salt and in particular sodium intake has risen to levels that are posing major health issues.
Whilst sodium is an essential nutrient it is generally accepted that an intake of less than 5 grams per day for an adult plays a significant part in the reduction of ones blood pressure, the risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke and coronary heart attack.
Unfortunately, in an attempt to enhance and preserve taste many everyday processed foods from cereals to soups, sauces, breads and ready meals have witnessed a noticeable and potentially harmful rise in salt content.
By reducing sodium levels and increasing the presence of beneficial potassium, NCC Food Ingredients offers its customer’s cost-effective low sodium salt alternatives that go a long way towards a more healthy diet and lifestyle.
