A research study conducted by HealthFocus International found that 65% of consumers are concerned about their salt intake. However, most of those people where more concerned about salt for cosmetic reasons rather than health. Women especially are focused more on the water weight gain associated with excess salt intake rather than maintaining a healthy blood pressure. The survey found that most people mistakenly believe that sea salt is a better alternative and mainly manage salt intake by avoiding table salt even while admitting that most salt is found in packaged food. I think that even small steps in acknowledging our salt intake is better than the status quo regardless of motivation, don’t you?
