(Drinks Media Wire). Responding to a release by Consensus Action on Salt and Health ‘Is your pasta sauce full of it’, Melanie Leech, Director General of the Food and Drink Federation, said:
“UK food manufacturers are leading the world on changing the recipes of their products – including pasta sauces – to contain less salt. Consumers have a very wide choice of tasty products to choose from and, as the CASH announcement demonstrates, those who want a lower salt option can find one simply by looking at the Guideline Daily Amount (GDA) labels that are found on the front of most food and drink products in the UK.”
