Cash or Consensus Action on Salt and Health has recently shed light on a newly discovered fact where bread-eaters are consuming extra amounts of salt; bacon is playing a big and almost equal role in making them have additional salt content, according to a report.
And where recession has shaken many families' budgets in the UK, meat-lovers are inclining more towards the reasonable product, which has raised concerns even more. It has been told by the group that bacon contains needless amounts of salt.
As per the findings, salt content varies with different brands. While the Best Applewood smoked dry cured back bacon contains 2g per 100g, Morrisons Savers smoked rindless back bacon has 6.8g per 100g i. e. three folds more than Applewood.
Only two rashers may also contain salt content more than half the recommended daily levels i. e. 6g. It is being said apart from others, two supermarkets Tesco and Marks & Spencer are on the right path as they met 2.88g per 100g at the end of year.
"For every one gram reduction in salt intake we can prevent 12,000 heart attacks, strokes and heart failure, half of which would have been fatal", Cash Chairman Graham MacGregor told. Also, he thus suggests that manufacturers should be asked to reduce the salt content immediately.
