Salt Content Differs in Global Brands

LONDON—Many popular global brand meals can contain large amounts of salt, in some cases more than twice the daily maximum limit for an adult in a single meal, according to new research from World Action on Salt and Health (WASH).

WASH surveyed more than 260 food products available around the world from food manufacturers such as KFC, McDonalds, Kellogg’s, Nestle, Burger King and Subway. Not one product surveyed had the same salt content around the world and some displayed huge differences in salt content from one country to another.
