Sodium is an essential nutrient to the human body. However, according to the research findings, excessive intake of sodium causes hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. According to the recent statistics from the World Health Organization (WHO), the global average sodium intake per day is twice than that of the recommended level of 2,300mg. These levels are even higher in the Asian and African regions. Regulatory bodies and food industry associations are working closely to formulate and implement long-term sodium reduction strategies. This trend has been constantly supported by the major food manufacturers with their voluntary commitments to reduce sodium levels in selected products segments based on timely targets.
