Many U.K. Commercial Salads Found To Be Loaded With Salt

August 27, 2010: 06:52 AM EST
The U.K. consumer watchdog Consensus Action on Salt and Health (CASH) reports that salads served in supermarkets, street cafes and fast food chains contain “surprisingly high levels of salt.” The group analyzed 270 salad and pasta bowls, finding that salads can unexpectedly contain more than half of the recommended daily maximum intake of six grams of salt. Ten percent of the salads tested contained more salt than a McDonald’s Big Mac. The saltiest was the Spicy Crayfish Noodle salad from EAT, with 3.51 grams of salt. Other salty salads included the KFC Zinger Salad with Caesar dressing or low fat vinaigrette dressing (3.1 grams) and the McDonald’s Crispy Chicken and Bacon Salad with low fat Caesar salad dressing or low fat balsamic dressing (2.6 grams).
