One Curry Meal at the Supermarket Saltier than Atlantic

One Curry Meal at the Supermarket Saltier than Atlantic

It has been reported that even one curry meal at the supermarket can comprise 3½ times more salt than it has been advised for daily intake.

Yesterday, it was revealed that some baltis are more salty than seawater.

According to the British Heart Foundation, the quantity of salt in some curries is shocking.

While the daily limit recommended for salt intake is just 6g, the Consumer group Consensus Action on Salt and Health checked 784 products from stores and takeaways and found that some best-selling curries plus separate naan bread, poppadums and pickle in total contain nearly 21g of salt.

It was found that the most terrible delinquents were Iceland's balti range, with six ready meals saltier than water in the Atlantic.

The chicken tikka balti at the store comprised an outrageous 7.2g of salt and their beef kofta balti was loaded with 5.9g and their prawn and spinach balti had 5.4g, all without adding rice or extras.

CASH's Katherine Jenner, stated, "For every gram of salt taken out of our diet, 6,000 lives are saved and 6,000 heart attacks are prevented."
