Some examples: - In January 2008 an Australian Organization (Awash) promoted a debate on salt and children as part of the International Salt Awareness Week. The recommended maximum intake is confirmed in 6 g/day. The meeting follow up includes actions to consult food industries to reduce the salt especially in food for children and improve the front pack labelling information on the salt content. Last February 2008 the first point in the meeting agenda of European High Level Group on Nutrition created by DG SANCO, is the salt reduction in foods. The following information and guidelines documents are pushing the big players to find strategies to improve the healthy content of their food products. EUROPEAN RECOMMENDATIONS IN DIETARY SALT REDUCTION: QUALITATIVE SUGGESTIONS RECOMMENDED TARGET (g/day) COUNTRIES 4 Rep. Of Ireland (advised target for adults) 5 WHO; Turkey, Estonia 6 UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Rep.

Branca, Regional Adviser, Nutrition Reg. Office for Europe - In April 2008 on the major Italian National newspaper web-site, an interview to Mrs Carla Favaro, Professor at the Specialization Nutrition School of the University of Milano-Bicocca, has been published. Prof. Favaro underlines that the daily consumption of salt is approximately 10 times more than needed by the human body and of course this is due to the domestic use but mainly to the salt content of industrial manufactured foods. The most "hidden" salt is in cereals derivatives (bread, pasta, crackers, bread substitutes, etc.) and in dressings, cubes, condiments.
