Some vegetarian burgers and sausages are just as salty as their meat equivalents, research disclosed on Sunday.

Some veggie burgers 'have too much salt'

Extract from the Telegraph:

"Consumers seeking "healthier" meat-free options need to choose carefully because some vegetarian products are even saltier than meat, the report by Consensus Action on Salt and Health (Cash) said.

The saltiest vegetarian sausage had more salt than five packets of crisps, while the saltiest vegetarian burger contained more salt than three packets of crisps, the study, published ahead of National Vegetarian Week, found.

Carrie Bolt, a nutritionist for Cash, said: "We would urge people to look carefully at the labelling to help make sure that they are buying lower salt products wherever they can.

"Two Cauldron Cumberland sausages contain two thirds of the maximum recommended daily salt intake for children aged four to six years, and that does not include the salt content of any ketchup, chips or baked beans that they may also have as part of the meal," she said."

Salty food causes weight gain/obesity in people who are sensitive to salt, so if you are overweight you would benefit from choosing food with less added salt.

Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
