Myths food
Most of the salt in our diet is added at the table
Fact:This is false,because 75% of the salt in our diet comes from processed foods. Just 10 to 15% comes from the salt we add when we're cooking or at the table. On average we're eating about 8.6g of salt a day. But we should try to cut this down to no more than 6g of salt a day for adults.
