MILFORD, Conn.Subway restaurant chain announced it is lowering the sodium content in its Subway Fresh Fit® sandwiches by 28 percent, a move that follows a 15-percent reduction in sodium across the board in its core sandwiches in an effort to provide more nutritious options and lower sodium intake on a national scale.
The reduced-sodium offerings will eliminate 450 tons of sodium in the American diet each year, compared to sodium levels three years ago. The reductions reflect Subways commitment to support the National Salt Reduction Initiative (NSRI); the chain already met the 2012 sodium benchmarks and will meet the 2014 benchmarks set forth. The company also is working on future sodium reductions as well as identifying opportunities to further enhance its nutritious offerings.
Sodium plays an important role in proper nutrition; but since most adults consume well over the recommended limit of salt each day, people of all ages and health levels can benefit reducing their sodium," said Lanette Kovachi, M.S., R.D, corporate dietician for Subway. Reducing the sodium intake can play an important role in reducing risk factors that can lead to heart disease."
